(Bob Dylan in Someday baby)
“Dear, if you change, I’ll never choose again.
Sweet, if you shrink, I’ll never think of love.”
(John Dowland in the song Dear, if you change)
“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness …”
(J. Keats in Endymion no. 1)
