Heinlein, “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.”

Mike is a consciousness too revolutionary to outlast the revolution.

A flag does not make the moon yours.

Point a finger at the moon to indicate it is already at the tip of your nail.

Moonlit.

The phases of the moon depend on its relation to the sun and the earth. Hence even the fullness of the moon is yet another sign of its emptiness.

Moons and stars.

Seeing the body is like looking at the sun. Seeing the mind is like looking at the moon.

Moons and stars.

Seeing the body is like looking at the sun. Seeing the mind is like looking at the moon.

Is the moon half full or half empty tonight?

Jones, “Moon.”

The isolated self plays with itself in a personal world of semblances. Only a radical action can re-insert this self into the public world of appearances.

In the day, my spirits are low.

The pull.

The instant I saw the full, low-hanging moon I realized the reason I had been drawn outside tonight.

Repetition with difference.

Looking up, I see the bright moon; looking down, I yearn for a home.
