"Ja nie jestem pono ani literatem, ani artystą, / I'm not a writer nor an artist,
choć piszę wiele i kocham wszelkie piękno - / Although I write a lot and I love all the beauty -
ja jestem człowiekiem mojego wieku, / I am a man of my age,
dzieckiem narodu mego. / a child of my nation."
(Józef Ignacy Kraszewski)
