A Quote by Gary Snyder on blue, light, moon, and stars

in the blue night
frost haze, the sky glows
with the moon
pine tree tops
bend snow-blue, fade
into sky, frost, starlight.
the creak of boots.
rabbit tracks, deer tracks,
what do we know.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on soul and stars


Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar;

A Quote by Dave Matthews on answers, questions, and stars

Are you looking for answers, to questions under the stars?
If along the way you are growing weary,
You can rest with me until a brighter day
It's okay

And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young

A Quote by Dar Williams on place and stars

There's the wind
And the rain
And the mercy of the fallen
Who say, "Hey, it's not my place
To know what's right"
There's the weak
And the strong
And the many stars that guide us
We have some of them inside us

A Quote by Dave Matthews on space, stars, time, and wonder

Here are we
On this starry night staring into space
And I must say
I feel as small as dust
Lying down here
What point could there be troubling?
Head down wondering what will
Become of me
Why concern we cannot see
But no reason to abandon it
Time is short but that's all right
Maybe I'll go in the middle of the night
Take your hands from your eyes, my love
Everything must end some time
Don't burn the day away

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on stars, music, life, and emerson

The House

...She lays her beams in music,
In music every ore,
To the candence of the whirling world
Which dances round the sun-
That so they shall not be displaced
By lapses or by wars,
But for the love of happy souls
Out live the newest stars.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on flower, stars, sheep, rose, and little prince

If some one loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that’s enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself, “My flower’s up there somewhere. . . .” But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it’s as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn’t important?

In my stars I am above thee; but be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.
