„High in the sky is a bird on a wing
Please carry me with you
Far far away from the mad rushing crowd
Please carry me with you“

„Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife“

—  Thomas Gray English poet, historian 1716 - 1771

St. 19
Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard http://www.thomasgray.org/cgi-bin/display.cgi?textelcc (written 1750, publ. 1751)
Contexto: Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife,
Their sober wishes never learned to stray;
Along the cool sequestered vale of life
They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.

„Madness is never that far away. It's as close as saying yes to the wrong impulse.“

—  Jim Carrey Canadian-American actor, comedian, and producer 1962

Contexto: Madness is never that far away. It's as close as saying yes to the wrong impulse. The people who stay sane are the people who can make those quick decisions: "Should I stick my fingers into the fan, or leave the room right now?
"Should I run the blade of this razor across my tongue, or just finish shaving and move away from the sink?"
But you don't because luckily most of us have that little voice inside our head that says, "Uh uh uh, turning the car into oncoming traffic... is counterproductive!"

„Slowly the joy of flower and bird
Did like a tide withdraw;
And in the heaven a silent star
Smiled on me, infinitely far.“

—  Francis William Bourdillon British poet 1852 - 1921

" The Chantry Of The Cherubim http://www.bartleby.com/236/219.html" in The Oxford Book of English Mystical Verse (1917) by D. H. S. Nicholson.
Contexto: p>I walk as one unclothed of flesh,
I wash my spirit clean;
I see old miracles afresh,
And wonders yet unseen.
I will not leave Thee till Thou give
Some word whereby my soul may live!I listened — but no voice I heard;
I looked — no likeness saw;
Slowly the joy of flower and bird
Did like a tide withdraw;
And in the heaven a silent star
Smiled on me, infinitely far.</p
