Józef Czechowicz
“... Mistrzu, czemuś smutny? ...
... Myślę ...
... Odgoń myśl, jam jest miłość ...
... A ja ból i groza ...
Siadł przy Henryku. Cisza. Dłonie Henryka szukają jego drobnych dłoni. Gdy siedzą tak obok siebie, prąd potężny płynie przez złączone ręce, które są najdoskonalszem narzędziem rozkoszy. Szaleństwo rozpala się w oczach Henryka, który w jego źrenicach widzi zarys swej twarzy płonącej gorączką.
I nagle pożar wybuchł w dłoniach drżących!
Słychać namiętny szept: Chcę ciebie... Chcę ciebie...
W przegięciu niedorzecznem pocałunek. Gorący i nieprzytomny. Potem głowa o przepysznej rzeźbie legła na kolanach Henryka, a ten wżera się ustami w blade, rozchylone usta Diadumena.
Cisza dzwoni tętnem krwi rozszalałej i echem obłędu. Gorączka w skroniach. Ociężałość i ból w oczach. Lampa gaśnie.
I dobrze, niech będzie mrok.
Bije małe serce chłopięce, usta płoną żądzą całowania, jak omdlały mu leci przez ręce i u kolan bezsilnie się słania. Jak namiętna jest dusza ta młoda, jakże dziwne jest to miłowanie: spotykanie, rozstanie, spotkanie, gniew i rozkosz - kwietniowa pogoda.”
Józef Czechowicz, Reflektor

Victor Hugo
“One might almost say that affinities begin with the letters of the alphabet. In that sequence, O and P are inseparable. You might just as well say O and P as Orestes and Pylades.
A true satellite of Enjolras, Grantaire lived within this circle of young men. He dwelt among them, only with them was he happy, he followed them everywhere. His pleasure was to watch these figures come and go in a wine-induced haze. They put up with him because of his good humour.
In his belief, Enjolras looked down on this sceptic; and in his sobriety, on this drunkard. He spared him a little lordly pity.
Grantaire was an unwanted Pylades. Always snubbed by Enjolras, spurned, rebuffed and back again for more, he said of Enjolras, ‘What marmoreal magnificence'.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Federico García Lorca
“Today in my heart
a vague trembling of stars,
but my way is lost
in the soul of the mist.
Light lops my wings.”
Federico García Lorca, The Selected Poems

Victor Hugo
“However, this sceptic had one fanaticism. This fanaticism was neither a dogma, nor an idea, nor an art, nor a science; it was a man: Enjolras. Grantaire admired, loved, and venerated Enjolras. To whom did this anarchical scoffer unite himself in this phalanx of absolute minds? To the most absolute. In what manner had Enjolras subjugated him? By his ideas? No. By his character. A phenomenon which is often observable. A sceptic who adheres to a believer is as simple as the law of complementary colors. That which we lack attracts us. No one loves the light like the blind man. The dwarf adores the drum-major. The toad always has his eyes fixed on heaven. Why? In order to watch the bird in its flight. Grantaire, in whom writhed doubt, loved to watch faith soar in Enjolras. He had need of Enjolras. That chaste, healthy, firm, upright, hard, candid nature charmed him, without his being clearly aware of it, and without the idea of explaining it to himself having occurred to him.”
Victor Hugo

Patrick Ness
“Raising his eyes to look directly into Linus's face was maybe the scariest thing he'd had to do all day long, but it was only the free-falling terror that always accompanied hope.”
Patrick Ness, Release
