Every day, every birthday candle I blow out, every penny I throw over my shoulder in a wishing well, every time my daughter says "Let's make a wish on a star," there is one thing I wish for: wisdom.
For rigorous teachers seized my youth, And other its faith, and trimmed its fire, Showed me the high, white star of Truth, There bade me gaze, and there aspire.Matthew Arnold
Light wrestling there incessantly with light, star kissing star through wave on wave unto Your body rocking!(Harold) Hart Crane
The loathsome mask has fallen, the man remains Sceptreless, free, uncircumscribed, but man Equal, unclassed, tribeless, and nationless, Exempt from awe, worship, degree, the king Over himself; just, gentle, wise: but man Passionless?no, yet free from guilt or pain, Which were, for his will made or suffered them, Nor yet exempt, though ruling them like slaves, From chance, and death, and mutability, The clogs of that which else might oversoar The loftiest star of unascended heaven, Pinnacled dim in the intense inane.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Stand still, you floods, do not defaceThat image which you bear:So votaries, from every place,To you shall altars rear.No winds but lovers' sighs blow here,To trouble these glad streams,On which no star from any sphereDid ever dart such beams.thomas carew
Happy are they who live in the dream of their own existence, and see all things in the light of their own minds; who walk by faith and hope; to whom the guiding star of their youth still shines from afar, and into whom the spirit of the world has not entered! They have not been "hurt by the archers", nor has the iron entered their souls. The world has no hand on them.william hazlitt
I’m a movie star. Can I talk to my entertainment lawyer?natasha lyonne
Comics seem to be cooking these days. It's like being a rock star.art spiegelman
Eat, speak, and move, under the influence of the most received star; and though the devil lead the measure such are to be followed.william shakespeare
"The shower is my time to open up my operatic chops, because of the enormous echo. You sound five times as big in the shower, so I break into some "Nessun Dorma" [from Puccini 's Turandot] or Pearl Jam. You've got to go big when you're in the shower. There's no half-singing in the shower, you're either a rock star or an opera diva."josh groban
You are my fav'rite star , My haven in heaven above, You are ev'rything I love .Cole Porter
I wanted to have the adoration of John Lennon but have the anonymity of Ringo Starr. I didn't want to be a frontman. I just wanted to be back there and still be a rock and roll star at the same time.
The star of the unconquered will, He rises in my breast, Serene, and resolute, and still, And calm, and self-possessed.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The winds of the Future wait At the iron walls of her Gate, And the western ocean breaks in thunder, And the western stars go slowly under, And her gaze is ever West In the dream of her young unrest. Her sea is a voice that calls, And her star a voice above, And her wind a voice on her walls-- My cool, grey city of love.
Your silence most offends me, and to be merry best becomes you; for out of question, you were born in a merry hour. No, sure, my lord, my mother cried; but then there was a star danced, and under that I was born.william shakespeare
Here, I'm going to make you a big star ... and you don't have to pay any dues. ... For that, you're going to get no respect from your contemporaries. ... To me, that was the cruelest thing.
This flower that smells of honey and the sea, White laurustine, seems in my hand to be A white star made of memory long ago Lit in the heaven of dear times dead to me.algernon charles swinburne
I could be well moved if I were as you; If I could pray to move, prayers would move me; But I am constant as the northern star, Of whose true fix'd and resting quality There is no fellow in the firmament.william shakespeare
There's but the twinkling of a star Between a man of peace and war.Samuel Butler
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!
George Lucas should have distributed the "source code" to star Wars. Millions of fans would create their own movies and stories. Most of them would be terrible, but a few would be genius.gabe newell
She shone for me like the Evening star. I loved her dearly but at a distance.winston churchill
