Beauty ...is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.
Who could be so lucky? Who comes to a lake for water and sees the reflection of moon.
The human heart is like the reflection on the water's surface. The mouth says things opposite to what the heart really feels.
I've used mirrors in a lot of movies. I think the mirror is an extraordinary thing, also the reflective, a reflection in water, etc.
The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we inhabit are not only critical elements in the quality of life we enjoy - they are a reflection of the majesty of our Creator.
These landscapes of water and reflection have become an obsession.
Thirst drove me down to the water
where I drank the moon's reflection.
Zen masters say you cannot see your reflection in running water, only in still water.
Language is like drinking from one's own reflection in still water. We only take from it what we are at the time.
The water in the stream may have changed many times, but the reflection of the moon and the stars remains the same.
Realization doesn't destroy the individual any more than the reflection of the moon breaks a drop of water. A drop of water can reflect the whole sky.
In order to reflect, think and plan, you must quiet yourself. You can't see your reflection in churning waters. Water must be still to see your reflection.
And me happiest when I compose poems:
Love, power, the huzza of battle
are something, are much:
yet a poem includes them like a pool
water and reflection.
Reflection is a flower of the mind, giving out wholesome fragrance; but revelry is the same flower, when rank and running to seed.
Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.
W. H. Auden
