Contexto: I felt that night, on the stage, incredibly close to everything in the universe, but also extremely alone.

—  Louisa May Alcott, livro Little Women

Marmee March to Jo, in Ch. 8 : Jo Meets Apollyon
Little Women (1868)
Contexto: You think your temper is the worst in the world, but mine used to be just like it. … I've been trying to cure it for forty years, and have only succeeded in controlling it. I am angry nearly every day of my life, but I have learned not to show it; and I still try to hope not to feel it, though it may take me another forty years to do it. … I've learned to check the hasty words that rise to my lips, and when I feel that they mean to break out against my will, I just go away for a minute, and give myself a little shake for being so weak and wicked.

„How slowly I have made my way in life! How much is still to be done!“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne American novelist and short story writer (1804 – 1879) 1804 - 1864

Letter http://www.ibiblio.org/eldritch/nh/hb12.html to Horatio Bridge (15 March 1851)
Contexto: How slowly I have made my way in life! How much is still to be done! How little worth — outwardly speaking — is all that I have achieved! The bubble reputation is as much a bubble in literature as in war, and I should not be one whit the happier if mine were world-wide and time-long than I was when nobody but yourself had faith in me.
The only sensible ends of literature are, first, the pleasurable toil of writing; second, the gratification of one's family and friends; and, lastly, the solid cash.
