  • Stars scribble in our eyes the frosty sagas, the gleaming cantos of unvanquished space.
  • Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me nots of the angels
  • The unquiet republic of the maze of planets, struggling fierce towards heaven's free wilderness.
  • Architects should be educated, skillful with the pencil, instructed in geometry, know much history, have followed the philosophers with attention, understand music, have some knowledge of medicine, know the opinions of the jurists, and be acquainted with astronomy and the theory of the heavens.
"...the lord-star Jupiter"
  • Up through the darkness,
    While ravening clouds, the burial clouds, in black masses spreading,

    Amid a transparent clear belt of ether yet left in the east,
    Ascends large and calm the lord-star Jupiter.
