„Late February days; and now, at last,
Might you have thought that Winter's woe was past;
So fair the sky was and so soft the air.“

„And as, in ethics, Evil is a consequence of Good, so, in fact, out of Joy is sorrow born. Either the memory of past bliss is the anguish of to-day, or the agonies which are, have their origin in the ecstasies which might have been.“

—  Edgar Allan Poe American author, poet, editor and literary critic 1809 - 1849
Context: And as, in ethics, Evil is a consequence of Good, so, in fact, out of Joy is sorrow born. Either the memory of past bliss is the anguish of to-day, or the agonies which are, have their origin in the ecstasies which might have been. ""Berenice"".
