To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.
There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and there are patriots who supported the war in Iraq. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.
You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the stars guides you too
Are you conscious of the restful influence which the stars exert? To me they are the most soothing things in Nature. I am proud to say that I don't
know the name of one of them. The glamour and romance would pass away from them if they were all classified and ticketed in one's brain. But when
a man is hot and flurried, and full of his own little ruffled dignities and infinitesimal misfortunes, then a star bath is the finest thing in the world.
God is like the stars, he's always there. On the brightest day He's there, although because of the Sun we may forget about Him, but then on the blackest Night we will see that He's still there
One man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world will be better for this.
In the world's audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight
The eternal stars shine out as soon as it is dark enough.
O, thou art fairer than the evening air clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.
Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.
Ideals are like stars: you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you reach your destiny.
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
I've loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground
Live for something. Do good, and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love, and mercy, on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with year by year; you will never be forgotten. No, your name, your deeds, will be as legible on the hearts you leave behind as the stars on the brow of evening. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven
There was emptiness more profound than the void between the stars, for which there was no here and there and before and after, and yet out of that void the entire plenum of existence sprang forth.
See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...we need silence to be able to touch souls.
Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
Don't care what they say, you reach for the stars.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.
The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is 'look under foot.' You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think. The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are. Do not despise you own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.
