Para poder alcanzar ciertas alturas, no las bajo: las levanto más.

„If I wasn't an actor, I think I'd have gone mad. You have to have extra voltage, some extra temperament to reach certain heights.“

—  Laurence Olivier British actor, director and producer 1907 - 1989

As quoted in Laurence Olivier (1979) by Foster Hirsch, p. 166
Contexto: If I wasn't an actor, I think I'd have gone mad. You have to have extra voltage, some extra temperament to reach certain heights. Art is a little bit larger than life — it's an exhalation of life and I think you probably need a little touch of madness.

„I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.“

—  Elizabeth Barrett Browning, livro Sonnets from the Portuguese

No. LXIII
Sonnets from the Portuguese (1850)
Variante: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach
Contexto: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
Contexto: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! —and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
