4. "And Yet the BooksAnd yet the books will be there on the shelves, separate beings,That appeared once, still wetAs shining chestnuts under a tree in autumn,And, touched, coddled, began to liveIn spite of fires on the horizon, castles blown up,Tribes on the march, planets in motion."We are," they said, even as their pagesWere being torn out, or a buzzing flameLicked away their letters. So much more durableThan we are, whose frail warmthCools down with memory, disperses, perishes.I imagine the earth when I am no more:Nothing happens, no loss, it's still a strange pageant,Women's dresses, dewy lilacs, a song in the valley.Yet the books will be there on the shelves, well born,Derived from people, but also from radiance, heights."
Author: Czeslaw Milosz
5. "She came upon a bankside of lavender crocuses. The sun was on them for the moment, and they were opened flat, great five-pointed, seven-pointed lilac stars, with burning centres, burning with a strange lavender flame, as she had seen some metal burn lilac-flamed in the laboratory of the hospital at Islington. All down and oak-dry bankside they burned their great exposed stars. And she felt like going down on her knees and bending her forehead to the earth in an oriental submission, they were so royal, so lovely, so supreme. She came again to them in the morning, when the sky was grey, and they were closed, sharp clubs, wonderfully fragile on their stems of sap, among leaves and old grass and wild periwinkle. They had wonderful dark stripes running up their cheeks, the crocuses, like the clear proud stripes on a badger's face, or on some proud cat. She took a handful of the sappy, shut, striped flames. In her room they opened into a grand bowl of lilac fire."
Author: D.H. Lawrence

9. "Smislio sam hiljadu stvari koje cu joj reci, a i ona je ponešto smislila, koliko je znam…Da smo rekli išta od toga, to bi potpuno zapetljalo stvar. Ovako, stvar se odmotala kao klupko vunice ispušteno iz krila. Zadivljujuce jednostavno…– Samo sam htela da imam nešto tvoje…Zauvek…Zumirao sam kristalnu kap u njenom lepom oku, koja je svetlucala kao titrava rosa na malenom zvoncicu durdevka.Sretan sam ja momak…Neki režiseri potroše citav život cekajuci takvu scenu, i opet ne uspeju da je snime.Hajde konju…Reci joj…Osetio sam da uglovi usana izmicu kontroli. Želiš nešto moje? Zauvek?-Da li bi prezime moglo da posluži? Osmeh ju je ostavio bez daha na trenutak, ali je šmrknula i nastavila da slaže stvari. Ali oboje smo znali da to više nije potrebno.Zagrlio sam je, s leda, privila se uz mene i pritisnula mi ruke sa svoje obe. Necu da se mešam, ali trebace ti neka veca torba. Moraceš i mene da spakuješ ako zaista misliš da odeš odavde…"

With the canal, the cost of shipping a ton of flour from Buffalo to New York City fell from $120 a ton to $6 a ton, and the carrying time was reduced from three weeks to just over one. The effect on New York's fortunes was breathtaking. Its share of national exports leaped from less than 10 percent in 1800 to over 60 percent by the middle of the century; in the same period, even more dazzlingly, its population went from ten thousand to well over half a million."
