„I think continually of those who were truly great.
Who, from the womb, remembered the soul's history
Through corridors of light where the hours are suns,
Endless and singing.“

— Стивен Спендер, Context: I think continually of those who were truly great. Who, from the womb, remembered the soul's history Through corridors of light where the hours are suns, Endless and singing. Whose lovely ambition Was that their lips, still touched with fire, Should tell of the spirit clothed from head to foot in song. "I Think of Those Who Were Truly Great"; also in Collected Poems 1928-1953 (1955)· [http://www.poetryarchive.org/poetryarchive/singlePoem.do?poemId=7523 Full text online and audio file of recitation by Spender, at the Poetry Archive]

„We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.“

— Woodrow Wilson American politician, 28th president of the United States (in office from 1913 to 1921) 1856 - 1924
