„Pictures, bright pictures, oh! they are to me
A world for thought to revel in. I love
To give a history to every face, to think —
As I thought with the painter — as I knew
What his high communing had been.“

—  Letitia Elizabeth Landon, The London Literary Gazette, 1823

„The title [of an album with prints of Israels and poems after his pictures, made by Nicolaas Beets ] will not be I hope 'Kroost der zee' ['Offspring of the Sea']. I think this is an insufferable dissonance. Call it 'Sketches from Fisher's life - of B to J.' I think that is the best, the simplest and the most attractive name. Also the word 'to' gives me justice, otherwise people will think that I made them [his pictures] after Beets and not Beets [his poems] after me.“

Quotes of Jozef Israels, 1840 - 1870, translation from the original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek version in original Dutch (citaat van Jozef Israëls in Nederlands): De titel [van een album met prenten van Israels en gedichten daarop van nl:Nicolaas Beets ] zal toch hoop ik niet zijn, 'Kroost der zee'.- zulks vind ik van een onuitstaanbare wanklank laat het heeten 'schetsen uit het visschersleven van B naar J. ' dat vind ik de beste eenvoudigste en meest aantrekkelijke naam. Tevens het woordje 'naar' doet mij regt, daar anders men meenen zoude dat ik ze naar Beets en niet Beets naar mij gemaakt heeft. Quote in his letter to publisher A.C. Kruseman in The Hague, 1861; as cited in LTK 1390 nr. 11, University Library of Leiden the compromise between Beets and Israëls became 'The Children of the Sea'; the album was published in four episodes, the first on 7 June, 1861

„I had a thought for no one's but your ears:
That you were beautiful, and that I strove
To love you in the old high way of love;“

—  W.B. Yeats Irish poet and playwright 1865 - 1939
In The Seven Woods (1904), Adam's Curse http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1431/, Context: I had a thought for no one's but your ears: That you were beautiful, and that I strove To love you in the old high way of love; That it had all seemed happy, and yet we'd grown As weary-hearted as that hollow moon. St. 5
