Famous quotes containing the words moon and/or sun:

    The moon is full tonight
    And hurts the eyes,
    It is so definite and bright.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    The primitive wood is always and everywhere damp and mossy, so that I traveled constantly with the impression that I was in a swamp; and only when it was remarked that this or that tract, judging from the quality of the timber on it, would make a profitable clearing, was I reminded, that if the sun were let in it would make a dry field, like the few I had seen, at once.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
