„This is the time of tension between dying and birth
The place of solitude where three dreams cross
Between blue rocks“

Ash-Wednesday (1930)
Kontekst: And the lost heart stiffens and rejoices
In the lost lilac and the lost sea voices
And the weak spirit quickens to rebel
For the bent golden-rod and the lost sea smell
Quickens to recover
The cry of quail and the whirling plover
And the blind eye creates
The empty forms between the ivory gates
And smell renews the salt savour of the sandy earth
This is the time of tension between dying and birth
The place of solitude where three dreams cross
Between blue rocks
But when the voices shaken from the yew-tree drift away
Let the other yew be shaken and reply.

„For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.“

—  Arthur O'Shaughnessy, Ode

Music and Moonlight (1874), Ode
Kontekst: We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o'erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world's worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.

Daniel Abraham Fotografia

„I think there's a real tension between sophistication and accessibility.“

—  Daniel Abraham speculative fiction writer from the United States 1969

interview with Locus Magazine, June 2008
Kontekst: Writers are a basically insecure bunch. We are convinced that everything we do sucks, all the time. It's something you have to fight. The best way to make sure that your writing will never be particularly good is to use it for something besides telling the story. And I think there's a real tension between sophistication and accessibility.
