- Suppose a Byron saw some of these scenes, he would be inclined to poetize in this manner: Morn dawns, and with it stern Udoe's hills, Dark Urrugum's rocks, and Kira's peak, Robed half in mist, bedewed with various rills, Arrayed in many a dun and purple streak. - "How I Found Livingstone", Sir Henry M. Stanley.
- You paint with the chisel and poetize with the brush. - "Old Fritz and the New Era", Louise Muhlbach.
- In reality, a disgust for the animal instinct has been trained for ages in hundreds of generations; it is inherited by me in my blood and forms part of my nature, and if I poetize love, is not that as natural and inevitable in our day as my ears' not being able to move and my not being covered with fur? - "The Darling and Other Stories", Anton Chekhov.
