Famous quotes containing the words eclipse, lunar and/or august:

    Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    A bird half wakened in the lunar noon
    Sang halfway through its little inborn tune.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    What an occupation! To sit and flay your fellow men and then offer their skins for sale and expect them to buy them.
    —J. August Strindberg (1849–1912)
