Happy Monday!  I saw this quote and was reminded about the yin and yang of life.  I’ve posted this quote photo on the LitQuotes Facebook page as well as the LitQuotes Google Plus page for easier sharing.

“The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together. Our virtues would be proud if our faults whipt them not; and our crimes would despair if they were not cherish’d by our virtues.” ~ All’s Well That Ends Well by William Shakespeare

I am wise enough to know that there are some perils from which a man must flee. ~ The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien

“My daughter, there are times of moral danger when the hardest virtuous resolution to form is flight, and when the most heroic bravery is flight.” ~ Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens

By this, he seemed to mean, not only that the most reliable and useful courage was that which arises from the fair estimation of the encountered peril, but that an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Five Quotes About the Moon from Literature

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the moon being nearer the Earth than usual on its elliptical orbit.  It allows us to get a better, closer look than normal.  If you missed last month’s supermoon, don’t worry.  There’s another one coming in just a few days on August 10th.   (You can learn more about it here.)

In the meantime, here are five quotes about the moon from literature.

May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks. ~ The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

“O, swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon,
That monthly changes in her circled orb,
Lest that thy love prove likewise variable.”
 ~ Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

“I don’t remember forms or faces now, but I know the girl was beautiful. I know she was; for in the bright moonlight nights, when I start from my sleep, and all is quiet about me, I see, standing still and motionless in one corner of this cell, a slight and wasted figure with long black hair, which streaming down her back, stirs with no earthly wind, and eyes that fix their gaze on me, and never wink or close.” ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens

“There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.” ~ Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad

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. ~ One of Ours by Willa Cather
