    • (Can we date this quote?), M. Eminescu, Scrisoarea I:
      Pe când luna strălucește peste-a tomurilor bracuri
      Într-o clipă-l poartă gândul îndărăt cu mii de veacuri
      La-nceput pe când ființă nu era nici neființă
      Pe când totul era lipsă de viață și voință []
      The moon looks in and sheds its beams a pile of ancient books upon
      He sets his mind to roving back across a thousand ages gone
      Into the time are things began, when being and not being still
      Did not exist to plague man’s mind, and there was neither life nor will []
