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

    To go by the asters
    and breathe
    the sweetness that hovers
    in August about the tall milkweeds,
    without a direct look ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

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

    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)
