„Not from the whole wide world I chose thee,
Sweetheart, light of the land and the sea!
The wide, wide world could not inclose thee,
For thou art the whole wide world to me.“

Song (1894).

„A thousand forms and passions glow
Upon the world-wide canvas.“

—  Francis Turner Palgrave English poet and critic 1824 - 1897

Upon the world-wide canvas. So
With larger scope our art we ply;
And if the crown be harder won,
Diviner rays around it run,
With strains of fuller harmony.

„The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay, Renascence

"Renascence" (1912), st. 20, Renascence and Other Poems (1917)
Kontext: The world stands out on either side
No wider than the heart is wide;
Above the world is stretched the sky, —
No higher than the soul is high.
The heart can push the sea and land
Farther away on either hand;
The soul can split the sky in two,
And let the face of God shine through.
But East and West will pinch the heart
That can not keep them pushed apart;
And he whose soul is flat — the sky
Will cave in on him by and by.
