„I send thee pansies while the year is young,
Yellow as sunshine, purple as the night;
Flowers of remembrance, ever fondly sung
By all the chiefest of the Sons of Light.“

—  Sarah Doudney, Poem: Pansies.

„Tempests and windes and winter-nights
Vex not, that but One sees thee grow,
That One made all these lesser lights.“

—  Henry Vaughan Welsh author, physician and metaphysical poet 1621 - 1695
Context: Tempests and windes and winter-nights Vex not, that but One sees thee grow, That One made all these lesser lights. If those bright joys He singly sheds On thee, were all met in one crown, Both sun and stars would hide their heads; And moons, though full, would get them down. "The Seed Growing Secretly".
