A Quote by Rolf Jacobsen on books and moon


 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 Lucille Lang Day on ladybugs, life, moon, nature, and sea

Rust-colored ladybugs, clustered like grapes,
mate on horsetails that wave by a creek,
where silvery salmon spawn and leap
when the sandbar breaks at the gate to the sea.

The ladybugs have come hundreds of miles,
from valley to coast, for this singles bash.
The females are choosy; they twiddle the males,
seeking appendages padded with fat.

And all around - high in redwood burls,
on elk-clover leaves, and in the rich soil -
the meaning of life is to stroke and prod
under a humpbacked moon, dissolving in fog.

A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on love, god, balance, rhythm, sun, moon, and dance

Love is the song of the soul singing to God.  It is the balanced rhythmic dance of planets - sun and moon lit

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952)

A Quote by Saigyō on light, moon, place, and trees

This place of mine
never is entered by humans
come for conversation,
only by the mute moon's light shafts
that slip in between the trees.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on life, moon, snow, stars, and winter

Up and away for life! be fleet!-
The frost-king ties my fumbling feet,
Sings in my ears, my hands are stones,
Curdles the blood to the marble bones,
Tugs at the heart-strings, numbs the sense,
And hems in life with narrowing fence.
Well, in this broad bed lie and sleep,-
The punctual stars will vigil keep,-
Embalmed by purifying cold;
The winds shall sing their dead-march old,
The snow is no ignoble shroud,
The moon thy mourner, and the cloud.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on children, moon, people, pictures, time, and trees

Children will draw pictures with everything in them...houses and trees and people and animals...and the sun AND the moon.  Grown-up says, "That's a nice picture, Honey, but you put the moon and the sun in the sky at the same time and that isn't right."  But the child is right!  The sun and moon are in the sky at the same time.

A Quote by Mary Chapin Carpenter on journey, moon, space, and stars

When I was young I spoke like a child
I saw with a child's eyes
And an open door was to a girl
Like the stars are to the sky
It's funny how the world lives up to
All your expectations
With adventures for the stout of heart
And the lure of the open spaces

There's two lanes running down this road
And whichever side you're on
Accounts for where you want to go
Or what you're running from
Back when darkness overtook me
On a blind man's curve

I relied upon the moon and Saint Christopher

A Quote by G. K. Chesterton on philosophy, habit, weak, cosmos, religion, private, sun, and moon

"The modern habit of saying, 'Every man has a different philosophy; this is my philosophy and it suits me'--the habit of saying this is mere weak mindedness.  A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos.  A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon."

G. K. Chesterton
