“She said, “Would you like to take a shower?
I’ll show you up to the door”
I said, “Oh, no! no!
I’ve been through this before”
I knew I had to split
But I didn’t know how …”
(Bob Dylan in Motorpsycho nightmare)
"Schaust du mich aus deinen Augen Lächelnd, wie aus Himmeln an, Fühl ich wohl, daß keine Lippe Solche Sprache führen kann." (J. K. B. von Eichendorff in Der Blick) Heusden-Zolder (B)
“‘Come, lean on me, ye that are weary!
Rise, ye faint-hearted and doubting!
Haste, ye that lag by the way!
I am Pride, the consoler;
Valour and Hope are my henchmen;
I am the Angel of Rest.”
(W.E. Henly from The book of verses)
“‘Turn, Fortune, turn thy wheel and lower the proud;
Turn thy wild wheel through sunshine, storm, and cloud;
Thy wheel and thee we neither love nor hate.”
(A. Tennyson from Enid and Nimuë: The True and the False)
