The sky was a midnight-blue, like warm, deep, blue water,
and the moon seemed to lie on it like a water-lily,
floating forward with an invisible current.
Willa Sibert Cather
The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon. Jean Ingelow
I like to think that the moon is there even if I am not looking at it. Albert Einstein
I suppose there were moonless nights and dark ones with but a silver shaving and pale stars in the sky, but I remember them all as flooded with the rich indolence of a full moon. Willa Sibert Cather
The man who has seen the rising moon break out of the clouds at midnight has been present like an archangel at the creation of light and of the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson
