- The wind blows out, the bubble dies;
The spring entomb'd in autumn lies;
The dew dries up; the star is shot;
The flight is past—and man forgot.
- Francis Beaumont, "On the Life of Man" (1828)
- Like bubbles on the sea of matter born.
- Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man § 3.19
- In infinite time, in infinite matter, in infinite space, is formed a bubble-organism, and that bubble lasts a while and bursts, and that bubble is Me.
