'A gleam in someone's eye' = tia hy vọng trong mắt ai; nét mặt (rạng rỡ) thể hiện sự vui vẻ, thích thú, hoặc biết bí mật.

Ví dụ
He wore a smile and a gleam in his eye — no hiding under a hat and dark glasses — from the moment he walked on stage, and why not?

Big Ben had a gleam in his eye when reminiscing (hồi tưởng, nhớ lại, kể về quá khứ) about his childhood hero, joking Elway had such a big arm “he could throw the ball through the car wash, and it wouldn’t get wet.”

At half-time, however, the Stanley Rivers coach, Joey Chambers, brings his players in tight and, with a gleam in his eye, tells them quietly: ‘When he gets the ball next time, just let him go through.’

In just two to four weeks, Holmes should be back up and running at full speed. He is going to Inova Mount Vernon for his surgery. Around 30 other people also got chosen for free services this year. "To be able to work a full shift without any pain," Holmes said with a gleam in his eye. "To put on shoes. To bend over. To go back to school. To just enjoying my life."
