„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.

„Flame unto flame shall flow and be
Within thy heart and mine as one.“

—  George William Russell Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, and artistic painter 1867 - 1935

By Still Waters (1906)
Contexto: When the lips I breathed upon
Asked for such love as equals claim
I looked where all the stars were gone
Burned in the day's immortal flame.
"Come thou like yon great dawn to me
From darkness vanquished, battles done:
Flame unto flame shall flow and be
Within thy heart and mine as one.".

„The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has not Christmas in his heart.“

—  Helen Keller American author and political activist 1880 - 1968

"Christmas in the Dark" in Ladies Home Journal (December 1906)
Contexto: The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has not Christmas in his heart. We sightless children had the best of eyes that day in our hearts and in our finger-tips. We were glad from the child's necessity of being happy. The blind who have outgrown the child's perpetual joy can be children again on Christmas Day and celebrate in the midst of them who pipe and dance and sing a new song!
