„So in this way of writing without thinking,
Thou hast a strange alacrity in sinking.“

—  Thomas Sackville, Charles Sackville, Earl of Dorset "On Mr Edward Howard, upon his British Princes"; cited from Geoffrey Grigson (ed.) The Oxford Book of Satirical Verse (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1980) p. 74

„Wait, wait, till thou hast heard this tale of mine,
Then shalt thou think them devilish or divine.“

—  William Morris author, designer, and craftsman 1834 - 1896
Context: A queen I was, what Gods I knew I loved, And nothing evil was there in my thought, And yet by love my wretched heart was moved Until to utter ruin I was brought! Alas! thou sayest our gods were vain and nought, Wait, wait, till thou hast heard this tale of mine, Then shalt thou think them devilish or divine.

„Think thou and act; to-morrow thou shalt die“

—  Dante Gabriel Rossetti English poet, illustrator, painter and translator 1828 - 1882
Context: Think thou and act; to-morrow thou shalt die Outstretch'd in the sun's warmth upon the shore, Thou say'st: "Man's measur'd path is all gone o'er: Up all his years, steeply, with strain and sigh, Man clomb until he touch'd the truth; and I, Even I, am he whom it was destin'd for." How should this be? Art thou then so much more Than they who sow'd, that thou shouldst reap thereby?
