„All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other—
Only the mountain and I.“

— Li Bai
[38] "Alone Looking at the Mountain" Variant translations: The birds have vanished down the sky. Now the last cloud drains away. We sit together, the mountain and me, until only the mountain remains. "Zazen on Ching-t'ing Mountain", trans. Sam Hamill Flocks of birds fly high and vanish; A single cloud, alone, calmly drifts on. Never tired of looking at each other— Only the Ching-t'ing Mountain and me. "Sitting Alone in Ching-t'ing Mountain", trans. Irving Y. Lo

„Enjoy a cup of wine while you're alive!
Do not care if your fame will not survive!“

— Li Bai
"Hard Is the Way of the World" III http://wengu.tartarie.com/wg/wengu.php?no=84&l=Tangshi, trans. Witter Bynner

„Since life is but a dream,
Why toil to no avail?“

— Li Bai
"A Homily on Ideals in Life, Uttered in Springtime on Rising From a Drunken Slumber" (c. 750), in A Golden Treasury of Chinese Poetry: 121 Classical Poems (1976), p. 115 Variant translation by Arthur Waley: "Life in the World is but a big dream; I will not spoil it by any labour or care."

„I sat drinking and did not notice the dusk,
Till falling petals filled the folds of my dress.“

— Li Bai
"Self-Abandonment" ( 自遣 http://www.chinese-poems.com/lb14t.html), as translated by Arthur Waley (1919)

„A cup of wine, under the flowering trees;
I drink alone, for no friend is near.
Raising my cup I beckon the bright moon,
For he, with my shadow, will make three men.
The moon, alas, is no drinker of wine;
Listless, my shadow creeps about at my side.
Yet with the moon as friend and the shadow as slave
I must make merry before the Spring is spent.
To the songs I sing the moon flickers her beams;
In the dance I weave my shadow tangles and breaks.
While we were sober, three shared the fun;
Now we are drunk, each goes his way.
May we long share our odd, inanimate feast,
And meet at last on the Cloudy River of the sky.“

— Li Bai
"Drinking Alone by Moonlight" (月下獨酌), one of Li Bai's best-known poems, as translated by Arthur Waley in More Translations From the Chinese (1919) Variant translation: From a pot of wine among the flowers I drank alone. There was no one with me— Till, raising my cup, I asked the bright moon To bring me my shadow and make us three. Alas, the moon was unable to drink And my shadow tagged me vacantly; But still for a while I had these friends To cheer me through the end of spring... I sang. The moon encouraged me. I danced. My shadow tumbled after. As long as I knew, we were boon companions. And then I was drunk, and we lost one another. ...Shall goodwill ever be secure? I watch the long road of the River of Stars. "Drinking Alone with the Moon" (trans. Witter Bynner and Kiang Kang-hu)

„I will mount a long wind some day and break the heavy waves,
And set my cloudy sail straight and bridge the deep, deep sea.“

"The Hard Road" (行路難) I http://wengu.tartarie.com/wg/wengu.php?no=82&l=Tangshi, trans. Witter Bynner

„Here it is night: I stay at the Summit Temple.
Here I can touch the stars with my hand.
I dare not speak aloud in the silence
For fear of disturbing the dwellers of Heaven.“

— Li Bai
"The Summit Temple" (夜宿山寺), in The White Pony: An Anthology of Chinese Poetry from the Earliest Times to the Present Day (1947), p. 173
