Men are like the stars; some generate their own light while others reflect the brilliance they receive.
It isn't a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for.
Benjamin E. Mays
God speaks to me not through the thunder and the earthquake, nor through the ocean and the stars, but through the Son of Man, and speaks in a language adapted to my imperfect sight and hearing.
William Lyon Phelps
The rock star is dying. And it's a small tragedy. Rock stars have blogs now. I have no use for that kind of rock star.
Technologies that may be realized in centuries or millennium include: warp drive, traveling faster than the speed of light, parallel universes; are there other parallel dimensions and parallel realities? Time travel that we mentioned and going to the stars.
I loathe rock stars. I am a music nerd, a fan, a follower... just like any fan of music might be. And although I have blood-relatives, a lot of times I feel closer to my audience than my true family, because at least my fans get what I'm doing, to a certain extent, whereas my family does not.
The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago... had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands.
The sky was clear - remarkably clear - and the twinkling of all the stars seemed to be but throbs of one body, timed by a common pulse.
This dark brightness that falls from the stars.
What I really want to say: That what the world really needs is a real feeling of kinship. Everybody: stars, laborers, Negroes, Jews, Arabs. We are all brothers.

O, thou art fairer than the evening air clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.
You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars.
The stars don't look bigger, but they do look brighter.
The stars, that nature hung in heaven, and filled their lamps with everlasting oil, give due light to the misled and lonely traveller.
The human heart is as a frail craft on which we wish to reach the stars.
Giotto di Bondone
They say some of my stars drink whiskey, but I have found that ones who drink milkshakes don't win many ball games.
It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars.
Arthur C. Clarke
And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there... Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.
Those fields of daisies we landed on, and dusty fields and desert stretches. Memories of many skies and earths beneath us - many days, many nights of stars.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I don't wanna be a rock star. I don't believe in rock stars. If you really examine what goes with being a rock star, I've avoided that really well.
You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it's like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos.
Good men are the stars, the planets of the ages wherein they live, and illustrate the times.
By the grace of God, my parents were fantastic. We were a very normal family, and we have had a very middle-class Indian upbringing. We were never made to realise who we were or that my father and mother were huge stars - it was a very normal house, and I'd like my daughter to have the same thing.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
