„When we can take green from grass, blue from heaven, and red from blood, we have already an enchanter's power.“

—  John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, livro On Fairy-Stories
On Fairy-Stories (1939), Context: The mind that thought of light, heavy, grey, yellow, still, swift also conceived of magic that would make heavy things light and able to fly, turn grey lead into yellow gold, and the still rock into a swift water. If it could do the one, it could do the other; it inevitably did both. When we can take green from grass, blue from heaven, and red from blood, we have already an enchanter's power.

„She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.“

—  W.B. Yeats Irish poet and playwright 1865 - 1939
Crossways (1889), Context: p>Down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet; She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree; But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.In a field by the river my love and I did stand, And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand. She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs; But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.</p Down By The Salley Gardens http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1476/
