Of distorting days
Lives that lonely thing
That shone before these eyes
Targeted, trod like Spring.“

O let it roar like spring's first thunderstorm!“

—  Anna Akhmatova Russian modernist poet 1889 - 1966

Translated by Irina Zheleznova

Will meet your eyes just once and then no more.

„One rule observed in their council is, never to debate a thing on the same day in which it is first proposed“

—  Thomas More, libro Utopia

Fuente: Utopia (1516), Ch. 3 : Of Their Magistrates
Contexto: One rule observed in their council is, never to debate a thing on the same day in which it is first proposed; for that is always referred to the next meeting, that so men may not rashly and in the heat of discourse engage themselves too soon, which might bias them so much that, instead of consulting the good of the public, they might rather study to support their first opinions, and by a perverse and preposterous sort of shame hazard their country rather than endanger their own reputation, or venture the being suspected to have wanted foresight in the expedients that they at first proposed; and therefore, to prevent this, they take care that they may rather be deliberate than sudden in their motions.
