Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. then your love would also change. ~ William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us. ~ Richard H. Baker
A conservative is a man who will not look at the new moon out of respect for that “ancient institution” the old one. ~ Douglas Jerrold
Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody. ~ Mark Twain
We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side. ~ Khalil Gibran
The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections. ~ Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
As a child I was always fascinated by the moon, so when I took this photo of the moon I thought I would put it up on my blog, along with some great moon quotes.
As a child I was also very philosophical and staring at the moon often caused me to move into deep thought about the vastness of the universe and the smallness of ourselves among it. I found myself often wondering what life was about and if we one did not exist, what did it look like when life did not exist? How can anything exist? How can nothing exist? I often found that I could go from fascination to total freak out in a very short amount of time as I realized how insignificant I was in a universal vastness so infinitely beyond my carnal comprehension. To this day I understand how so many people need a faith to believe in – to help answer the questions that leave you full of apprehension and lack of understanding.
Today, 213 days ’til 40, I still stare at the moon, and am still in awe at the vastness of the universe we inhabit.
