Remember that life is
Not meant to be wasted
We can always be chasing the sun
So fill up your lungs and just—run!
We can always be chasing the sun“
— Sara Bareilles American pop rock singer-songwriter and pianist 1979
Lyrics, The Blessed Unrest (2013), "Chasing the Sun"
„The moon walks east of midnight,
The sun walks west of noon.
And though I love you, sweetheart,
I will not sing your tune.“
— Tanith Lee, buch East of Midnight
East of Midnight (1977), Chapter 2, “Full Moon” (p. 24; often repeated)
„Although the semicircle of the Moon is placed above the circle of the Sun and would appear to be superior, nevertheless we know that the Sun is ruler and King. We see that the Moon in her shape and her proximity rivals the Sun with her grandeur, which is apparent to ordinary men, yet the face, or a semi-sphere of the Moon, always reflects the light of the Sun.“

„Whatever else has been said about me personally is unimportant. When I sing, I believe. I'm honest.“

As quoted in And I Quote : The Definitive Collecton of Quotes, Sayings, and Jokes for the Contemporary Speechmaker (2003) by Ashton Applewhite , Tripp Evans, and Andrew Frothingham.
„Hence I feel no shame in asserting that this whole region engirdled by the moon, and the center of the earth, traverse this grand circle amid the rest of the planets in an annual revolution around the sun. Near the sun is the center of the universe. Moreover, since the sun remains stationary, whatever appears as a motion of the sun is really due rather to the motion of the earth.“

Song lyrics, Moods (1972), Play Me
„It's the way you play that makes it. What I say is, for Christ's sake, you don't have to kill yourself to sing. Play like you play. Play like you think, and then you got it, if you're going to get it. And whatever you get, that's you, so that's your story.“

„The lions sing and the hills take flight.
The moon by day, and the sun by night.
Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool.
Let the Lord of Chaos rule.“
