"Could we dig up this long-buried treasure, Were it worth the pleasure, We never could learn love's song, We are parted too long." (O. Wild in Roses and Rue) Liège (B)
"Auch kleine Dinge können uns entzücken, Auch kleine Dinge können teuer sein. Bedenkt, wie gern wir uns mit Perlen schmücken; Sie werden schwer bezahlt und sind nur klein." (P. Heyse in Italienisches Liederbuch, no. 109) Liège (B)
