        In little rivulets of light,  And makes the heart in love with night.

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

        in his Rice University Moon Speech, September 12, 1962

It is the Harvest Moon! On gilded vanes,  And roofs of villages, on woodland crests
And their aerial neighborhoods of nests,  Deserted, on the curtained window-panes
Of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes,  And harvest-like fields, its mystic splendor rests.
