When Iconsider thyheavens,theworkofthy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.Thou madest himtohave dominionover the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet.Bible (Old Testament)
The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes, And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave To the dark and the empty skies.
The stag at eve had drunk his fill, Where danced the moon on Monan's rill.
I didn't go to the moon, I went much furtherfor time is the longest distance between two places.
A weak mind sinks under prosperity, as well as under adversity. A strong and deep mind has two highest tides – when the moon is at the full, and when there is no moon.david hare
It’s amazing to me that not only can we put a probe around Saturn and get images of its moons, but our math and physics are so freaking accurate we can say, "Hey, you know what? On this date at this time if we turn Cassini that way we’ll see a moon over 2 million kilometers away pass in front of another one nearly 3 million kilometers away."Every morning, I have a 50/50 chance of finding my keys. That kinda puts things in perspective.phil plait
Man, made after God's image, was a nobler creation than twinkling sparks in the sky, or than the larger and more useful lamp of the moon.david brewster
I promise to be an excellent husband, but give me a wife who, like the moon, will not appear every day in my sky.Anton Chekhov
Today I sat before the cliff Until the mist and rainbows disappeared I followed the emerald stream Explored a thousand tiers of green cliffs In the morning my spirit rests among white clouds At night a bright moon floats in the sky I am free of the busy world There is not a doubt in my heart or a worry to disturb my mindhan shan
They should call the good man an ass ! They should call the bad ass a man ! ]]Ironically]] ... to speak thus of you, so smart, friend of the old and the young, of the stream and the butterfly , of the sun and the dog , of the flower and the moon , patient and thoughtful, melancholic and lovable, the Marcus Aurelius of the fields…juan ramón jiménez
Nasrudin walked into a house and exclaimed, "The moon is more useful than the sun." "Why?" he was asked. "Because at night we need the light more."nasreddin
As when the moon , refulgent lamp of night , O'er heaven 's clear azure spreads her sacred light , When not a breath disturbs the deep serene, And not a cloud o'ercasts the solemn scene; Around her throne the vivid planets roll, And stars unnumbered gild the glowing pole, O'er the dark trees a yellower verdure shed, And tip with silver every mountain's head; Then shine the vales, the rocks in prospect rise, A flood of glory bursts from all the skies.
Good even, good fair moon, good even to thee. I prithee, dear moon, now show to me the form and the features, the speech and degree, of the man that true lover of mine shall be.walter scott
There is a Precious Mountain Even the Seven Treasures cannot compare A cold moon rises through the pines Layer upon layer of bright clouds How many towering peaks? How many wandering miles? The valley streams run clear Happiness forever!
If the cells and fibres in one human brain were all stretched out end to end, they would certainly reach to the moon and back. Yet the fact that they are not arranged end to end enabled man to go there himself. The astonishing tangle within our heads makes us what we are.
The bay-trees in our country all are wither'd And meteors fright the fixed stars of heaven; The pale-fac'd moon looks bloody on the earth And lean-look'd prophets whisper fearful change; Rich men look sad and ruffians dance and leap, The one in fear to lose what they enjoy, The other to enjoy by rage and war.
My ungodly book speaks to you. On All Hallows Eve, when the moon is round, a virgin will summon us from under the ground! [laughs with a bit of glee] We shall be back, and the lives of all the children of Salem will be mine! BoooOOOOOOOOOOOOK!!!
We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.
Or fairy elves, Whose midnight revels by a forest side Or fountain, some belated peasant sees, Or dreams he sees, while overhead the moon Sits arbitress, and nearer to the Earth Wheels her pale course; they, on their mirth and dance Intent, with jocund music charm his ear; At once with joy and fear his heart rebounds.john milton
