„Die Sagen, die der Erde sich entfernen,
Vom Geiste, der gewesen ist und wiederkehret,
Sie kehren zu der Menschheit sich, und vieles lernen
Wir aus der Zeit, die eilends sich verzehret.“

– Friedrich Hölderlin: Der Herbst, 1837, Verse 1–4

"The stories that are leaving earth that are
About the spirit that was here and will return 
They turn our way again and we can learn
Much from time that wastes faster and faster."

– Friedrich Hölderlin: Autumn, 1837, Verse 1–4, translated by David Constantine
