„I remember my loves, my conversation, my friendships. I remember it all, see it all, see them all.“

The Clerk's Vision (1949)
Contexto: I remember my loves, my conversation, my friendships. I remember it all, see it all, see them all. With melancholy, but without nostalgia. And above all, without hope. I know that it is immortal, and that, if we are anything, we are the hope of something. For me, expectation has spent itself. I quit the nevertheless, the even, the in spite of everything, the moratoriums, the excuses and forgiving. I know the mechanism of the trap of morality and the drowsiness of certain words. I have lost faith in all those constructions of stone, ideas, ciphers. I quit. I no longer defend this broken tower. And, in silence, I await the event.

„Rus! Rus! I see you, from my lovely enchanted remoteness I see you“

—  Nikolai Gogol, livro Almas Mortas

Vol. II, ch. 2
Dead Souls (1842)
Contexto: Rus! Rus! I see you, from my lovely enchanted remoteness I see you: a country of dinginess, and bleakness and dispersal; no arrogant wonders of nature crowned by the arrogant wonders of art appear within you to delight or terrify the eyes... So what is the incomprehensible secret force driving me towards you? Why do I constantly hear the echo of your mournful song as it is carried from the sea through your entire expanse?... And since you are without end yourself, is it not within you that a boundless thought will be born?

And now the whole world is here for me to see,
Now I'm searching for my love to be.

„I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them--with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.“

—  Eudora Welty, livro One Writer's Beginnings

One Writer's Beginnings(1984)
Contexto: It had been startling and disappointing to me to find out that story books had been written by people, that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass. Yet regardless of where they came from, I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them -- with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.

„I love all of the african americans like they are my children.“

"African american" seems an ananchronistic term here, as the term was seldom used before the 1970s.
