„Good deeds stand tall like a green pine, evil deeds bloom like flowers;
The pine is not as brilliant as the flowers, it seems.
When the frost comes, the pine will still stand tall,
While the flowers, withered, can be seen no more“

The Gourd and the Palm-tree, Stanza 4

„The vilest deeds like poison weeds
Bloom well in prison-air:
It is only what is good in Man
That wastes and withers there“

—  Oscar Wilde, buch The Ballad of Reading Gaol

Pt. V, st. 30
The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898)
Kontext: The vilest deeds like poison weeds
Bloom well in prison-air:
It is only what is good in Man
That wastes and withers there:
Pale Anguish keeps the heavy gate,
And the Warder is Despair.

„One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow“

—  Wallace Stevens, buch Harmonium

"The Snow Man"
Harmonium (1923)
Kontext: p>One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;And have been cold a long time
To behold the junipers shagged with ice,
The spruces rough in the distant glitterOf the January sun; and not to think
Of any misery in the sound of the wind,
In the sound of a few leaves,Which is the sound of the land
Full of the same wind
That is blowing in the same bare placeFor the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.</p
