„There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.“

—  Thornton Wilder, Context: Soon we shall die and all memory of those five will have left earth, and we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.

—  William Gibson American-Canadian speculative fiction novelist and founder of the cyberpunk subgenre 1948
Context: The lane to the land of the dead. Where you are, my friend. Marie-France, my lady, she prepared this road, but her lord choked her off before I could read the book of her days. Neuro from the nerves, the silver paths. Romancer. Necromancer. I call up the dead. But no, my friend," and the boy did a little dance, brown feet printing the sand, "I am the dead, and their land."

„There were only four witches in all the Land of Oz, and two of them, those who live in the North and the South, are good witches.“

—  L. Frank Baum Children's writer, editor, journalist, screenwriter 1856 - 1919
Context: There were only four witches in all the Land of Oz, and two of them, those who live in the North and the South, are good witches.

Those who dwelt in the East and the West were, indeed, wicked witches; but now that you have killed one of them, there is but one Wicked Witch in all the Land of Oz — the one who lives in the West.
