Poster: Movers and Shakes

World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

Thanks to James Stansell at Google+, I learned about the origin of the phrase "movers and shakers." It comes from a poem entitled "Ode" by Arthur O'Shaughnessy. You can read more about the poem at Wikipedia. The moon photo is by klareralt at Flickr, and the poster is made with Automotivator.
