„True love's the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven“

—  Walter Scott Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet 1771 - 1832
Context: True love's the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven: It is not fantasy's hot fire, Whose wishes, soon as granted, fly; It liveth not in fierce desire, With dead desire it doth not die; It is the secret sympathy, The silver link, the silken tie, Which heart to heart, and mind to mind In body and in soul can bind. Canto V, stanza 13.

„I've learned some things from having lived:
If you're alive, experience largely, merge with rivers, heavens, cosmos
For what we call living is a gift given to life
And life is a gift bestowed upon us“

—  Ataol Behramoğlu Turkish writer 1942
"I've Learned Some Things" (1977) Variant translations: There is one thing I learned from what I lived: When you live, you must live big, like being one with the rivers, the sky, and the whole universe Because what we call lifetime is a gift presented to life And life is a gift presented to you. Translated as "There Is One Thing I Learned From What I Lived" by Sãleyman Fatih Akgãl at TC Turkish Poetry Pages
