"Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage ..."
(R. Lovelace in To Althea, from prison)
Jemeppe sur Meuse (B)
"The man that is open of heart to his neighbour,
And stops to consider his likes and dislikes,
His blood shall be wholesome whatever his labour,
His luck shall be with him whatever he strikes.
The Splendour of Morning shall dully possess him,
That he may not be sad at the falling of eve."
(R. Kipling in Neighbours)
“I was young when I left home
An’ I been out a-ramblin’ round
An’ I never wrote a letter to my home
To my home, lord, to my home
An’ I never wrote a letter to my home.”
(Bob Dylan in I was young …)
