Allas nahe werde fern.

-Goethe

 

... There are not leaves enough to crown,
To cover, to crown, to cover - let it go - 
The actor that will at last declaim our end.

-Wallace Stevens
"United Dames of America"

 

Je ne vois qu'infini par toutes les fenêtres.

- Charles Baudelaire
Les Fleurs Du Mal

 

Others apart sat on a hill retir'd
In thoughts more elevate, and reason'd high
Of Providence, foreknowledge, will, and fate,
Fix'd fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute,
And found no end, in wand'ring mazes lost.

-John Milton
Paradise Lost

 

 

I understand.
