„Autumn has come;
Storming now heaveth the deep sea with foam,
Yet would I gratefully lie there,
Willingly die there.“

"Ingeborg's Lament".

than die by inches on this desolate island here!“

—  Homér, The Odyssey (Cowper)

„Just as a vessel caught by the Pleiads on the foaming deep and kept safe only by its anxious helmsman’s care cleaves unharmed the sea that contending winds make boisterous, so Pollux warily watches the blows.“

—  Gaius Valerius Flaccus, kniha Argonautica

Originál: (la) Spumanti qualis in alto
Pliade capta ratis, trepidi quam sola magistri
cura tenet, rapidum ventis certantibus aequor
intemerata secat, Pollux sic providus ictus
servat.

„Being come to flood and fullness now, the tide
Is risen in mine as in the sea's own heart
To tempest and to triumph. Not for nought
Am I that wild wife's bridegroom — old and hoar,
Not sapless yet nor soulless.“

—  Algernon Charles Swinburne English poet, playwright, novelist, and critic 1837 - 1909

Faliero, Act III, Sc. 1.
Marino Faliero (1885)
Kontext: A poor man's wrong and mine and all the world's,
Diverse and individual, many and one,
Insufferable of long-suffering less than God's,
Of all endurance unendurable else,
Being come to flood and fullness now, the tide
Is risen in mine as in the sea's own heart
To tempest and to triumph. Not for nought
Am I that wild wife's bridegroom — old and hoar,
Not sapless yet nor soulless.
