„Dear Night! this world's defeat;
The stop to busy fools; care's check and curb;
The day of spirits; my soul's calm retreat
Which none disturb!“

—  Henry Vaughan Welsh author, physician and metaphysical poet 1621 - 1695

"The Night," l. 25.
Silex Scintillans (1655)
Contexto: Dear Night! this world's defeat;
The stop to busy fools; care's check and curb;
The day of spirits; my soul's calm retreat
Which none disturb!
Christ's progress, and His prayer-time;
The hours to which high Heaven doth chime.

—  Warren Buffett American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist 1930
