„To strut about in the E-kur is a glory for Bird, as its singing is sweet. … It shall utter its cries in the temple of the great gods. The Anuna gods rejoice at its voice. It is suitable for banquets in the great dining hall of the gods.“

—  Shulgi, In Debate between Bird and Fish (mid to late ). [http://etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk/section5/tr535.htm]

„To be great, be whole; don't exaggerate
Or leave out any part of you,
Be complete in each thing. Put all you are
Into the least of your acts.
So too in each lake, with its lofty life,
The whole moon shines.“

— Fernando Pessoa, Poems of Fernando Pessoa
