„The picture of the mind revives again:
While here I stand, not only with the sense
Of present pleasure, but with pleasing thoughts
That in this moment there is life and food
For future years.“

—  William Wordsworth, kniha Lyrical Ballads, Lyrical Ballads (1798–1800), Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey (1798), Context: And now, with gleams of half-extinguished thought, With many recognitions dim and faint, And somewhat of a sad perplexity, The picture of the mind revives again: While here I stand, not only with the sense Of present pleasure, but with pleasing thoughts That in this moment there is life and food For future years. And so I dare to hope, Though changed, no doubt, from what I was when first I came among these hills; Stanza 3.

As Spring revives the year,
And hails us with the cuckoo's song,
To show that she is here;“

„Some minds will jump here jump to the conclusion that a past idea cannot in any sense be present. But that is hasty and illogical.“

—  Charles Sanders Peirce American philosopher, logician, mathematician, and scientist 1839 - 1914
The Law of Mind (1892), Context: Some minds will jump here jump to the conclusion that a past idea cannot in any sense be present. But that is hasty and illogical. How extravagant too, to pronounce our whole knowledge of the past to be mere delusion! Yet it would seem that the past is completely beyond the bounds of possible experience as a Kantian thing-in-itself.
