    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl. A great black shape against the fires beyond he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgûl, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face.

    All save one. There waiting, silent and still in the space before the Gate, sat Gandalf upon Shadowfax: Shadowfax who alone among the free horses of the earth endured the terror, unmoving, steadfast as a graven image in Rath Dínen.
    "You cannot enter here," said Gandalf, and the huge shadow halted. "Go back to the abyss prepared for you! Go back! Fall into the nothingness that awaits you and your Master. Go!"
    The Black Rider flung back his hood, and behold! he had a kingly crown; and yet upon no head visible was it set. The red fires shone between it and the mantled shoulders vast and dark. From a mouth unseen there came a deadly laughter.
    "Old fool!" he said. "Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know Death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain!" And with that he lifted high his sword and flames ran down the blade.

    And in that very moment, away behind in some courtyard of the city, a cock crowed. Shrill and clear he crowed, recking nothing of war nor of wizardry, welcoming only the morning that in the sky far above the shadows of death was coming with the dawn.
    And as if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns, in dark Mindolluin's sides they dimly echoed. Great horns of the north wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last.”
    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

    Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar
    “-Ama doktor, ben hasta değilim...Allah rızası için... size anlattım.
    tekrar gözlerini gözlerime dikti en katî sesiyle:
    -Hastasınız... diye kesip attı. Psikanaliz çıktığından beri hemen herkes az çok hastadır.”

    Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar
    “Bırak doktor şu psikanalizi... Allah belasını versin! Biz şimdi rakı içiyoruz.' Doktor Ramiz derhal psikanalizi bırakıyor ve hemen onun yerini istakozu alıyor. Doğrusunu isterseniz, on senedir, onunla beraber olduğumuz zamanlarda benim de yapmak istediğim hep bu idi. Fakat beni davet ettiği meyhanelerde, masanın üstünde psikanalizden başka ağza konacak doğru dürüst bir şey bulunmazdı.”

    Friedrich Nietzsche
    “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”
    Friedrich Nietzsche

    “No, I give it up,” Alice replied: “What’s the answer?”
    “I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter”
    Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
