Mystical Moon

Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars.
Les Brown
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
George Carlin

Tell me what you feel in your room when the full moon is shining in upon you and your lamp is dying out, and I will tell you how old you are, and I shall know if you are happy.

You can be the moon and still be jealous of the stars.
Gary Allan

The moon is a friend for the lonesome to talk to.
Carl Sandburg

The woman's perspective is like the dark side of the moon: it always exists, but it is never exposed, at least not in my culture.
Ang Lee

โ€œWe all shine on...like the moon and the stars and the sun...we all shine on...come on and on and on...โ€
โ€• John Lennon
โ€œYours is the light by which my spirit's born: - you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.โ€
โ€• E.E. Cummings
โ€œHer antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian generations: her nocturnal predominance: her satellitic dependence: her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising and setting by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response to inaffirmative interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her power to enamour, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her silence: her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible.โ€
โ€• James Joyce, Ulysses
โ€œBut even when the moon looks like it's waning...it's actually never changing shape. Don't ever forget that.โ€
โ€• Ai Yazawa, Nana, Vol. 14
โ€œI am a cemetery by the moon unblessed.โ€
โ€• Charles Baudelaire, Paris Spleen
โ€œThe moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.โ€
โ€• Deng Ming-Dao, Everyday Tao: Living with Balance and Harmony
โ€œWe ran as if to meet the moon.โ€
โ€• Robert Frost
โ€œI never really thought about how when I look at the moon it;s the same moon as Shakespeare and Marie Antoinette and George Washington and Cleopatra looked at.โ€
โ€• Susan Beth Pfeffer, Life As We Knew It
Go slowly, my lovely moon, go slowly.โ€
โ€• Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
A song she heard
Of cold that gathers
Like winter's tongue
Among the shadows
It rose like blackness
In the sky
That on volcano's
Vomit rise
A Stone of ruin
From burn to chill
Like black moonrise
Her voice fell still...โ€
โ€• Robert Fanney
โ€œI am the sun who will bring delight when you are in-front of me. I am the moon who will show shyness when you are away from me.โ€
โ€• Santosh Kalwar
For you, a comet, under a blue sky, leaves trail of color,
For you, a star, dreams of being able to kiss you, dream to hear your voice
For you, full moon, keep vigil for you, my girl, keep vigil for you, my love.โ€
โ€• Miguel รngel Sรกez Gutiรฉrrez, Zori 2ยช Parte
โ€œThe moon in her chariot of pearlโ€
โ€• Oscar Wilde, The Nightingale and the Rose
โ€œWe love the night and its quiet; and there is no night that we love so well as that on which the moon is coffined in clouds.โ€
โ€• Fitz James O'Brien, Classic Ghost Stories by Wilkie Collins, M. R. James, Charles Dickens and Others
