...I find star gazing helps me settle myself. I look up at the stars on a clear night. “Here’s harmony!” I tell myself; “here’s repose! Here’s what may leave all painting and all music behind, and what poetry only can attempt to describe! Here’s what may tranquillise every care, and lift the heart to rapture! When I look out on such a night as this, I feel as if there could be neither wickedness nor sorrow in the world; and there certainly would be less of both if the sublimity of Nature were more attended to, and people were carried more out of themselves by contemplating such a scene."
Ah, yes, the stars...
"They know their place in the sky, and hold their course and their aim, and each in its season returns and returns and is always the same. And if they fall...." Well, best not to get into that now.
