„We cannot kindle when we will
The fire that in the heart resides“

—  Matthew Arnold English poet and cultural critic who worked as an inspector of schools 1822 - 1888

"Morality" (1852), st. 1
Contexto: We cannot kindle when we will
The fire that in the heart resides,
The spirit bloweth and is still,
In mystery our soul abides; —
But tasks, in hours of insight willed,
Can be through hours of gloom fulfilled.

„Heart of my heart, the world is young;
Love lies hidden in every rose!“

—  Alfred Noyes English poet 1880 - 1958

Unity, § I
The Golden Hynde and Other Poems (1914)
Contexto: Heart of my heart, the world is young;
Love lies hidden in every rose!
Every song that the skylark sung
Once, we thought, must come to a close:
Now we know the spirit of song,
Song that is merged in the chant of the whole,
Hand in hand as we wander along,
What should we doubt of the years that roll?
