„O what a blessed day that will be when I shall... stand on the shore and look back on the raging seas I have safely passed; when I shall review my pains and sorrows, my fears and tears, and possess the glory which was the end of all!“

Shall waste their sorrows at my bier,
Nor worthless pomp of homage vain
Stain it with hypocritic tear.“

„No roaming now, my wars are passed away,
No long dull days devoid of happiness,
When such a love my yearning heart shall bless.“

— William Morris author, designer, and craftsman 1834 - 1896
Context: So on he went, and on the way he thought Of all the glorious things of yesterday, Nought of the price whereat they must be bought, But ever to himself did softly say "No roaming now, my wars are passed away, No long dull days devoid of happiness, When such a love my yearning heart shall bless."
