Methinks the truth should live from age to age,
As 'twere retailed to all posterity,
Even to the general all-ending day
If you don't appear at all one day they think you're lazy or dead.
- Frank O'Hara
And whilst our souls negotiate there,
We like sepulchral statues lay;
All day, the same our postures were,
And we said nothing, all the day.
- John Donne
Here we are all, by day; by night we are hurled By dreams, each one into a several world.
- Robert Herrick
And I would love you all the Day,
Every Night would kiss and play,
If with me you'd fondly stray
Over the Hills and far away
- John Gay
A woman spent all Christmas Day in a telephone box without ringing anyone. If someone comes to phone, she leaves the box, then resumes her place afterwards. No one calls her either, but from a window in the street, someone watched her all day, no doubt since they had nothing better to do. The Christmas syndrome
- Jean Baudrillard
