„That was indeed to live—
At one bold swoop to wrest
From darkling death the best
That Death to Life can give!“

Shaw. Memorial Ode; reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

Contexto: Faith is a living, bold trust in God's grace, so certain of God's favor that it would risk death a thousand times trusting in it. Such confidence and knowledge of God's grace makes you happy, joyful and bold in your relationship to God and all creatures. The Holy Spirit makes this happen through faith. Because of it, you freely, willingly and joyfully do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of things, love and praise the God who has shown you such grace.

„Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
I have been half in love with easeful Death“

—  John Keats, Ode to a Nightingale

Stanza 6
Poems (1820), Ode to a Nightingale
Fonte: The Complete Poems
Contexto: Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
I have been half in love with easeful Death,
Call'd him soft names in many a musèd rhyme,
To take into the air my quiet breath;
Now more than ever seems it rich to die,
To cease upon the midnight with no pain,
While thou art pouring forth thy soul abroad
In such an ecstasy!
Still wouldst thou sing, and I have ears in vain —
To thy high requiem become a sod.
