“A great White Bear waits outside. He has faithfully promised to make us all rich if he can but have our youngest daughter.”
Peter Christen Asbjørnsen, East of the Sun and West of the Moon: Old Tales from the North

“Når verden går meg imot, og det unnlater den sjelden å gjøre når det gis noen leilighet til det, har jeg alltid funnet meg vel ved å ta en friluftsvandring som demper for min smule bekymring og uro. Hva som hadde vært i veien denne gangen, husker jeg nå ikke mer; men det som står klart for min erindring, er at jeg en sommerettermiddag for noen år siden vandret oppover engene på østsiden av Akerselva”
Peter Christen Asbjørnsen, Samlede eventyr. Bd. 1-2
