Fly me to the moon Let me play among the stars Let me see what spring is like on A-Jupiter and Mars. - Frank Sinatra + my own uploaded Anime image described as: Two young men contemplating apocalypse on a beach.
Go friends, fetch our beloved; bring me please that fugitive idol! With sweet songs and golden excuses, fetch home the beautiful-faced good moon. And if he promises that "I will come another time", every promise is a trick, he will cheat you. He has such warm breath, that with magic and enchantments he can tie a knot in water and make air solid. With blessedness and joy, when my beloved appears, sit and keep gazing on the miracles of God. When his glory shines, what is the glory of the beautiful? Since his sun-like face kills the lamps. Go, o lightly-moving heart, to Yemen, to the stealer of my heart; take my greetings and my service to that jewel without price. - Rumi's ghazal 163
Day after day this summer's rain keeps them from setting up our tombstone. Let us stay home together my love and not know as the rain does not know where it came from and the sea that is all around us does not know its beginning. - W.S. Merwin
My wish is that my ability to desire you is greater than my ability to fulfill my desires. - Dionysus
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you did not do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. - Mark Twain
She hasn't your strength. She's never had any strength. She's never had anything but heart. ― Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind
A hundred times I wanted to kill myself, but always I loved life more. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our worst instincts; is anything more stupid than choosing to carry a burden that really one wants to cast on the ground? to hold existence in horror, and yet to cling to it? to fondle the serpent which devours us till it has eaten out our heart? In the countries through which I have been forced to wander, in the taverns where I have had to work, I have seen a vast number of people who hated their existence; but I never saw more than a dozen who deliberately put an end to their own misery. - Candide, Voltaire
It was a terrible bequest, still fresh in its commemoration. There’s nothing, friends, for me to add, you’ll learn it all from my narration. The tale I tell you will be sad. - The Bronze Horseman, Pushkin.
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Sonnet 18, Shakespeare
