I love thee, I love but thee, with a love that shall not die till the sun grows cold, and the stars are old, and the leaves of the Judgment Book unfold!bayard taylor
Wake! For the sun, who scatter'd into flightThe Stars before him from the Field of Night,Drives Night along with them from Heav'n, and strikesThe Sultan's Turret with a Shaft of Light.omar khayyám

The Spanish voyager, as his caravel ploughed the adjacent seas, might give full scope to his imagination, and dream that beyond the long, low margin of forest which bounded his horizon lay hid a rich harvest for some future conqueror; perhaps a second Mexico with its royal palace and sacred pyramids, or another Cuzco with its temple of the sun, encircled with a frieze of gold. Haunted by such visions, the ocean chivalry of Spain could not long stand idle.francis parkman
Often, very often, I am alone. My studio in Amsterdam, (Beckmann lived in the center of Amsterdam during World War 2.) an enormous old tobacco storeroom is again filled in my imagination with figures from the old days and from the new, like an ocean moved by storm and sun and always present in my thoughts. Then shapes become beings and seem comprehensible to me in the great void and uncertainty of the space which I call god.max beckmann
Icarus flew too close to the sun.Daedulus and Icarus
Mislike me not for my complexion, The shadow’d livery of the burnish’d sun.Prince of Morocco, scene i
If you mean that the proximity of one color should give beauty to another that terminates near it, observe the rays of the sun in the composition of the rainbow, the colors of which are generated by the falling rain, when each drop in its descent takes every color of the bow.Leonardo da Vinci Treatise on Painting (c. 1490)
Eternities before the first-born day, Or ere the first sun fledged his wings of flame, Calm Night, the everlasting and the same, A brooding mother over chaos lay.james weldon johnson
In the face of the sun are great thunderbolts hurled, And the storm - clouds have shut out its light ; But a Rainbow of Promise now shines on the world , And the universe thrills at the sight .Ella Wheeler Wilcox, in The Rainbow of Promise"
The sun had long since in the lap Of Thetis taken out his nap, And, like a lobster boil'd, the morn From black to red began to turn.Samuel Butler, Hudibras, Part II (1664), Canto II, line 29.
As the rising sun melts thinly frozen ice, so the Japanese Army is overcoming Chinese troops.shunroku hata
The sun had long since in the lap Of Thetis taken out his nap, And, like a lobster boil'd, the morn From black to red began to turn.Canto II, line 29.
Cricket to us was more than play, It was a worship in the summer sun.Edmund Charles Blunden
With lack of sleep and too much understanding I grow a little crazy,Ithink, likeall menat seawho livetoo closeto each other and too close thereby to all that is monstrous under the sun and moon.Sir William (Gerald) Golding
The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit and all his thoughts will perish.arthur balfour
Nothing escapes God 's knowledge . This is proved by the witness of the Scriptures and the analogy of the sun , which, although created, yet by its light or heat enters into all things.Saint Ambrose, in Duties of The Clergy, p.11
Whence are thy beams, O sun! thy everlasting light? Thou comest forth in thy awful beauty; the stars hide themselves in the sky; the moon, cold and pale, sinks in the western wave; but thou thyself movest alone.james macpherson
Our glories float between the earth and heavenLike clouds which seem pavilions of the sun.edward bulwer-lytton
So, probably … when I started painting the pelvis bones I was most interested in the holes in the bones — what I saw through them- particularly the blue from holding them up in the sun against the sky as one is apt to do when one seems to have more sky than earth in one’s world … they were most beautiful against the Blue — that Blue that will always be there as it is now after all man’s destruction is finished.Georgia O'Keeffe
Whilst I study to find how I am a microcosm of little world,I find myself something more than the great. There is surelya piece of divinity in us; something that was before the elements, and owes no homage unto the sun.SirThomas Browne
Tutes les dames de une tere Vendreit il meuz d'amer requere Quë un fol de sun pan tolir; Kar cil volt an eire ferir.It would be less dangerous for a man to court every lady in an entire land than for a lady to remove a single besotted lover from her skirts, for he will immediately attempt to strike back.
This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune, often the surfeit of our own behaviour, we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars; as if we were villains by necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion, knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on: an admirable evasion of whore-master man, to lay his goatish disposition to the charge of a star!Edmund, Scene II
England’s sun was slowly setting o’er the hill-tops far away,Filling all the land with beauty at the close of one sad day;And its last rays kissed the forehead of a man and maiden fair,—He with footsteps slow and weary; she with sunny, floating hair;He with bowed head, sad and thoughtful; she with lips so cold and white,Struggled to keep back the murmur, “Curfew must not ring to-night.”Curfew must not ring To-night (published 1870).
Oh, I think it was like when, you know, Cupid throws an arrow and hits you. First, there was this Mexican band, dressed up with bows and arrows. They were playing some funky weird music,, I didn't know it yet, but it was like Lee Perry, George Clinton, and sun Ra mixed up, Mexican funky.carlos santana
The Soul appears to be finite because of ignorance. When ignorance is destroyed the Self which does not admit of any multiplicity truly reveals itself by itself: like the sun when the clouds pass away.Adi Shankara, in Atma Bodha
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.St. 1.
