Είμαι στάχτες εκεί που κάποτε ήμουν διάπυρος, και ο βάρδος στην καρδιά μου έχει πεθάνει, ό,τι αγαπούσα τώρα απλώς θαυμαζω - και η καρδιά μου είναι γκρίζα όπως ο νους μου.

-Lord Byron

I am ashes where once I was fire

And the bard in my bosom is dead,

what I loved I now merely admire—

and my heart is as grey as my head.
