"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Great phrase - "You want the Moon on a Stick"

Basically this means that whatever the person gets they won't be satisfied - they always want more.

As far as I know this came from a comedy show called Fist Of Fun with Lee and Herring in the 90's
