„A thousand ages onward led
Their joys and sorrows to that hour;
No wisdom weighed, no word was said,
For only what we were had power.“

—  George William Russell Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, and artistic painter 1867 - 1935
By Still Waters (1906), Context: Aye, after victory, the crown; Yet through the fight no word of cheer; And what would win and what go down No word could help, no light make clear. A thousand ages onward led Their joys and sorrows to that hour; No wisdom weighed, no word was said, For only what we were had power.

—  Michel Henry French writer 1922 - 2002
Books on Phenomenology of Life, The Essence of Manifestation (1963), (fr) Mais la joie n'a rien au sujet de quoi elle puisse être joyeuse.
