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

    This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    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)
