„Once let the Angel blow! —
A peal from the parted heaven,
The first of seven!“

—  Bayard Taylor, Context: Once let the Angel blow! — A peal from the parted heaven, The first of seven! For the time is come that was foretold So long ago! As the avalanche gathers, huge and cold, From the down of the harmless snow, The years and the ages gather and hang Till the day when the word is spoken: When they that dwell in the end of time Are smitten alike for the early crime, As the vials of wrath are broken! "Gabriel" in The Century : A Popular Quarterly, Volume 18 (1874), p. 617.

„This was in part the meaning of Blow-Up.“

—  Michelangelo Antonioni Italian film director and screenwriter 1912 - 2007
Context: The photographer in Blow-Up, who is not a philosopher, wants to see things closer up. But it so happens that, by enlarging too far, the object itself decomposes and disappears. Hence there's a moment in which we grasp reality, but then the moment passes. This was in part the meaning of Blow-Up. On his film Blow-Up, as quoted in Michelangelo Antonioni : The Complete Films (2004) edited by Seymour Chatman and Paul Duncan, p. 113
