Famous quotes containing the word moon:

    The moon shines bright. In such a night as this,
    When the sweet wind did gently kiss the trees,
    And they did make no noise, in such a night
    Troilus methinks mounted the Troyan walls,
    And sighed his soul toward the Grecian tents,
    Where Cressid lay that night.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
