„Now but a shade
ahead on my life’s course will languish.
Behind is laid
my now abandoned way of anguish.Behind me lies
the spring beneath its cruel icing.
It life supplies –
to summer verses’ door enticing.It’s taken me,
this chilling hand that yet I cherish.
And now I see
in summer’s heart that I must perish.“

—  Saima Harmaja Finnish poet and writer 1913 - 1937

A poem from the collection “Hunnutettu” (“Veiled”), translation by Rupert Moreton (1936)
Original: (fi) Nyt varjo vain
on edessäni elon matka.
Ja takanain
on tuskan tie, se jot’ en jatka.<p>Mun takanain
on kevät alla julman kirren.
Sen elää sain,
sain kynnykselle suvivirren.<p>Sen mukanaan
vei käsi kallis, kylmentyvä.
Nyt suven maan
nään sydämessä hauta syvä.

„All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age in the world, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity“

—  Joseph Addison politician, writer and playwright 1672 - 1719

No. 101 (26 June 1711).
The Spectator (1711–1714)
Kontext: "Censure," says a late ingenious author, "is the tax a man plays for being eminent." It is a folly for an eminent man to think of escaping it, and a weakness to be affected with it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age in the world, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of comitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph.

„It was my destiny to join in a great experience. Having had the good fortune to belong to the League, I was permitted to be a participant in unique journey.“

—  Hermann Hesse, buch Journey to the East

Journey to the East (1932)
Kontext: It was my destiny to join in a great experience. Having had the good fortune to belong to the League, I was permitted to be a participant in unique journey. What wonder it had at the time! How radiant and comet-like it seemed, and how quickly it has been forgotten and allowed to fall into disrepute. For this reason, I have decided to attempt a short description of this fabulous journey, a journey the like of which had not been attempted since the days of Hugo and mad Roland.

„Since I have spread my wings to purpose high,
The more beneath my feet the clouds I see,
The more I give the winds my pinions free,
Spurning the earth and soaring to the sky.“

As quoted in "Giordano Bruno" by Thomas Davidson, in The Index Vol. VI. No. 36 (4 March 1886), p. 429

„I have heard the annunciation of whatever finer things are to come. Through me has passed, without staying me in my course, the Word which does not lie, and which, said over again, will satisfy.“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

The Inferno (1917), Ch. XVII
Kontext: What I have seen is going to disappear, since I shall do nothing with it. I am like a mother the fruit of whose womb will perish after it has been born.
What matter? I have heard the annunciation of whatever finer things are to come. Through me has passed, without staying me in my course, the Word which does not lie, and which, said over again, will satisfy.

„Having now been in the trenches for five months, I had passed my prime.“

—  Robert Graves English poet and novelist 1895 - 1985

Quelle: Goodbye to All That (1929), Ch.16 On being in the trenches in France in 1915.
Kontext: Having now been in the trenches for five months, I had passed my prime. For the first three weeks, an officer was of little use in the front line... Between three weeks and four weeks he was at his best, unless he happened to have any particular bad shock or sequence of shocks. Then his usefulness gradually declined as neurasthenia developed. At six months he was still more or less all right; but by nine or ten months, unless he had been given a few weeks' rest on a technical course, or in hospital, he usually became a drag on the other company officers. After a year or fifteen months he was often worse than useless.
