„Wavering between the profit and the loss
In this brief transit where the dreams cross
The dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying“

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

—  T.S. Eliot 20th century English author 1888 - 1965

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.

„It is advertising that enthrones the customer as king. This infuriates the socialist…[it is] the crossing of the boundary between West Berlin and East Berlin. It is Checkpoint Charlie, or rather Checkpoint Douglas, the transition from the world of choice and freedom to the world of drab, standard uniformity.“
