    L’amour pour lui, pour le corps humain, c’est de même un intérêt extrêmement humanitaire et une puissance plus éducative que toute la pédagogie du monde!
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)

    To fight aloud is very brave,
    But gallanter I know,
    Who charge within the bosom
    The Cavalry of Woe.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    The Cossack eats Poland,
    Like stolen fruit;
    Her last noble is ruined,
    Her last poet mute:
    Straight, into double band
    The victors divide;
    Half for freedom strike and stand;—
    The astonished Muse finds thousands at her side.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
