The unquiet republic of the maze of planets, struggling fierce towards heaven's free wilderness.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Heaven's ebon vault,
  Studded with stars unutterably bright,
    Through which the moon's unclouded grandeur rolls,
      Seems like a canopy which love has spread
        To curtain her sleeping world.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Queen Mab (pt. IV)

I go back to those who say: what if the heavens fall?
  [Lat., Redeo ad illes qui aiunt: quid si coelum ruat?]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer),
        Heauton timoroumenos (IV, 3)

Of evening tinct,
  The purple-streaming Amethyst is thine.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 150)

The birds I heard today, which, fortunately, did not come within the scope of my science, sang as freshly as if it had been the first morning of creation.
      - Henry David Thoreau,
        from Thoreau's journal

Never till then so many thunderbolts from cloudless skies. (Bolt from the blue.)
  [Lat., Non alias caelo ceciderunt plura sereno.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        Georgics (I, 487)

Green calm below, blue quietness above.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier,
        The Pennsylvania Pilgrim (st. 113)

The soft blue sky did never melt
  Into his heart; he never felt
    The witching of the soft blue sky!
      - William Wordsworth, Peter Bell
         (pt. I, st. 15)
