Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars.

"Now, Voyager"


We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Oscar Wilde, "Lady Windermere’s Fan"


The music enchanted the air. It was like the south wind, like a warm night, like swelling sails beneath the stars, completely and utterly unreal... It made everything spacious and colourful, the dark stream of life seemed pulsing in it; there were no burdens any more, no limits; there existed only glory and melody and love, so that one simply could not realize that, at the same time as this music was, outside there ruled poverty and torment and despair.

Erich Maria Remarque, "Three Comrades"


All men have the stars, but they are not the same things for different people.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery, "The Little Prince"


I like too many things and get all confused and hung up running from one falling star to another till I drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

Jack Kerouac, "On The Road"
