„Life has loveliness to sell,
All beautiful and splendid things,
Blue waves whitened on a cliff,
Soaring fire that sways and sings,
And children's faces looking up
Holding wonder like a cup.“

"Barter"
Love Songs (1917)

„The pulse of war and passion of wonder,
The heavens that murmur, the sounds that shine,
The stars that sing and the loves that thunder,
The music burning at heart like wine,
An armed archangel whose hands raise up
All senses mixed in the spirit's cup
Till flesh and spirit are molten in sunder —
These things are over, and no more mine.“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne, livro Poems and Ballads

Poems and Ballads (1866-89), The Triumph of Time
Contexto: p>The pulse of war and passion of wonder,
The heavens that murmur, the sounds that shine,
The stars that sing and the loves that thunder,
The music burning at heart like wine,
An armed archangel whose hands raise up
All senses mixed in the spirit's cup
Till flesh and spirit are molten in sunder —
These things are over, and no more mine. These were a part of the playing I heard
Once, ere my love and my heart were at strife;
Love that sings and hath wings as a bird,
Balm of the wound and heft of the knife.
Fairer than earth is the sea, and sleep
Than overwatching of eyes that weep,
Now time has done with his one sweet word,
The wine and leaven of lovely life.</p

„And singing still dost soar and soaring ever singest.“

—  Percy Bysshe Shelley, To a Skylark

St. 2
To a Skylark (1821)
Contexto: Higher still and higher
From the earth thou springest,
Like a cloud of fire;
The blue deep thou wingest,
And singing still dost soar and soaring ever singest.

„A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness“

—  John Keats, Endymion

Bk. I, l. 1
Endymion (1818)
Contexto: A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

„Far far from gusty waves these children's faces.
Like rootless weeds the torn hair round their paleness.“

„All things are beautiful
Because of something lovelier than themselves,
Which breathes within them, and will never die.“

—  Lucy Larcom American teacher, poet, author 1824 - 1893

Introductory poem.
Poems (1869)
Contexto: This is a haunted world. It hath no breeze
But is the echo of some voice beloved:
Its pines have human tones; its billows wear
The color and the sparkle of dear eyes.
Its flowers are sweet with touch of tender hands
That once clasped ours. All things are beautiful
Because of something lovelier than themselves,
Which breathes within them, and will never die. —
Haunted,—but not with any spectral gloom;
Earth is suffused, inhabited by heaven.

„They may get invited to the premiere and they come out of the premiere looking like all of their children had just been gassed, with a stunned look on their face because everything has been changed.“

—  George Raymond Richard Martin American writer, screenwriter and television producer 1948

On his background in Hollywood and the risks of adaptioning one's work for the screen, at Authors@Google (August 2011) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTTW8M_etko
Contexto: Sometimes I think some of my fellow novelists who have not worked in television and film are very naive about this process. They get an offer and there's the dump truck full of money and they sign it, they cash the check and then they're not involved in the series. They may get invited to the premiere and they come out of the premiere looking like all of their children had just been gassed, with a stunned look on their face because everything has been changed.
