Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them. ∼ Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine

And pay no worship to the garish sun.

Remember to look up at the stars and now down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.

For millions of years flowers have been producing thorns. For millions of years sheep have been eating them all the same. And it’s not serious, trying to understand why flowers go to such trouble to produce thorns that are good for nothing? It’s not important, the war between the sheep and the flowers? It’s no more serious and more important than the numbers that fat red gentleman is adding up? Suppose I happen to know a unique flower, one that exists nowhere in the world except on my planet, one that a little sheep can wipe out in a single bite one morning, just like that, without even realizing what he’d doing – that isn’t important? If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that’s enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself ‘My flower’s up there somewhere…’ But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it’s as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn’t important? ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows. ~ Helen Keller

I once had a dreams of becoming a beautiful poet, but upon an unfortunate series of events some of those dreams dashed and divided like a million stars in the night sky that I wished on over and over again, sparkling and broken.

It’s the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world. ~ Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me

All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

“You owe me.”

What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.

~ Hafiz

Each star is a mirror reflecting the truth inside you. ~ Aberjhani, Journey through the Power of the Rainbow: Quotations from a Life Made Out of Poetry

Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Because they can’t say anything.
I love the stars.
Because they do not judge anyone.

All shadows of clouds the sun cannot hide
like the moon cannot stop oceanic tide;

at night’s black spell on darkness, beguiling.

A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again. ∼ C. JoyBell C.

I will go east and go west
From whence came the moon and the sun
The moon and the sun will go
And the young man with his reputation behind him
∼ Clannad, Theme From Harry’s Game

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. ∼ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Stars, too, were time travelers. How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead? How many had been born but their light not yet come this far? If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries—but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was. ∼ Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I have walked a stair of swords,
I have worn a coat of scars.
I have vowed with hollow words,
I have lied my way to the stars

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night. ∼ Sarah Williams, Twilight Hours: A Legacy Of Verse

What I really want to tell him is to pick up that baby of his and hold her tight, to set the moon on the edge of her crib and to hang her name up in the stars. ∼ Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

Even as a child, she had preferred night to day, had enjoyed sitting out in the yard after sunset, under the star-speckled sky listening to frogs and crickets. Darkness soothed. It softened the sharp edges of the world, toned down the too-harsh colors. With the coming of twilight, the sky seemed to recede; the universe expanded. The night was bigger than the day, and in its realm, life seemed to have more possibilities. ∼ Dean Koontz, Midnight

If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore; and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown! But every night come out these envoys of beauty, and light the universe with their admonishing smile. ∼ Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature and Selected Essays

A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really…”Do the stars gaze back?” Now, that’s a question. ∼ Neil Gaiman, Stardust
