I wrote down and made a list of some idioms, phrases and lyrics utilizing “look”, “watch”, “see”… . I am from Greece so I am interested in exploring new English expressions and idioms in order to understand more their meaning.
“a cat may look at a king”
“be like looking for a needle in a haystack”
“don’t look a gift horse in the mouth”
“looking for trouble”
“future looks bright”
“look in the face”
“Alice through the looking glass” by Lewis Carroll.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (The Little Prince).
“All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream” by Edgar Allan Poe (A dream within a dream).
“Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind. And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.” by William Shakespeare (A Midsummer Night’s Dream).
This is only a part of my list.
