„The greater cats with golden eyes
Stare out between the bars.
Deserts are there, and the different skies,
And night with different stars.“

—  Vita Sackville-West, Context: The greater cats with golden eyes Stare out between the bars. Deserts are there, and the different skies, And night with different stars. They prowl the aromatic hill, And mate as fiercely as they kill, To roam, to live, to drink their fill; But this beyond their wit know I: Man loves a little, and for long shall die. "The Greater Cats"

„Yet stars in greater numbers shine,
And violets in millions grow,
And they in many a golden line
Are sung, as every child must know.“

—  Joyce Kilmer American poet, editor, literary critic, soldier 1886 - 1918
Context: Perhaps he lives and dies unpraised, This trafficker in humble sweets, Because his little shops are raised By thousands in the city streets. Yet stars in greater numbers shine, And violets in millions grow, And they in many a golden line Are sung, as every child must know.
