Like falling stars from the universe we are hurled
Down through the long loneliness of the world
Until we behold the pain, become the pearl

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry on place, sea, space, and stars

Surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become.  But also he needs the great Milky Way above him and the vast sea spaces, though neither stars nor ocean serve his daily needs.

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 James Taylor on moon and stars


Synchronized with the rising moon
Even with the evening star
They were true love written in stone
They were never alone, they were never that far apart
