„Your heart is as fresh as your face; and that is well. The useless men are those who never change with the years.“

—  Джеймс Барри, The Little Minister (1891), Context: Your heart is as fresh as your face; and that is well. The useless men are those who never change with the years. Many views that I held to in my youth and long afterwards are a pain to me now, and I am carrying away from Thrums memories of errors into which I fell at every stage of my ministry. When you are older you will know that life is a long lesson in humility. Ch. 3 : The Night-Watchers

„Heart, my heart, so battered with misfortune far beyond your strength,
up, and face the men who hate us.“

—  Archilochus Ancient Greek lyric poet -680 - -645 до н.э.
Fragments, Context: Heart, my heart, so battered with misfortune far beyond your strength, up, and face the men who hate us. Bare your chest to the assault of the enemy, and fight them off. Stand fast among the beamlike spears. Give no ground; and if you beat them, do not brag in open show, nor, if they beat you, run home and lie down on your bed and cry. Keep some measure in the joy you take in luck, and the degree you give way to sorrow. All our life is up-and-down like this. Fragment 67, as translated by R. Lattimore http://www.rhapsodes.fll.vt.edu/arkhilokhos67.htm Variant translations: Soul, my soul, don't let them break you, all these troubles. Never yield: though their force is overwhelming, up! attack them shield to shield... "Archilochos: To His Soul" : A fragment http://web.archive.org/20030629194753/geocities.com/joncpoetics/translations/Archsoul.htm as translated from the Greek by Jon Corelis http://web.archive.org/20030805055937/www.geocities.com/joncpoetics/ Take the joy and bear the sorrow, looking past your hopes and fears: learn to recognize the measured dance that orders all our years.

„Winds howl and howl at ghosts of those war's killed—
on soldiers' faces shines the stalking moon.
O men, alive or dead, has anyone
portrayed your faces or invoked your souls?“

Chinh phụ ngâm, Hồn tử sĩ gió ù ù thổi, Mặt chinh phu trăng dõi dõi soi. Chinh phu tử sĩ mấy người, Nào ai mạc mặt, nào ai gọi hồn. Lines 97–100
