A Quote by Rolf Jacobsen on books and moon

in

 Look -
The moon thumbs through night's book.
Finds a lake where nothing is printed.
Draws a straight line.  That's all
it can.
That's enough.
Thick line.  Straight toward you.
 - Look.

A Quote by Rolf Jacobsen on light, self, stars, time, and universe

If you go far enough out
you can see the Universe itself,
all the billion light years summed up time
only as a flash, just as lonely, as distant
as a star on a June night
if you go far enough out.

And still, my friend, if you go far enough out
you are only at the beginning

- of yourself.

A Quote by Rolf Jacobsen on earth, eternity, and people

Sssh says the ocean
Sssh says the small wave at the shore ~ sssh
not so violent, not
so proud, not
so remarkable.
Sssh
says the surf
crowding around the outcrops,
washing the shore. Sssh,
they say to people,
this is our Earth,
our eternity.
