A wild dedication of yourselves
To unpathed waters, undreamed shores.

Camillo (an honest Sicilian nobleman) to Perdita (daughter of Leontes and Hermione) and Florizel (Polixenes's son, who falls in love with Perdita) in The Winter's Tale, Act IV, Scene IV (1623) by William Shakespeare (1564–1616). –pjoef (talkcontribs) 09:41, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

    • Comment: Yes you are, in part, correct, but this can be extended and applied to Wikipedia's growth in general, both in article's count and articles' quality. Camillo here is suggesting that there are unexplored, undiscovered, and unknown "seas and shores", far from our usual routes, beyond our imagination, incognito places that we have never even dreamed of. Undreamed here means something that we never thought. We must also consider that at the time of Shakespeare there were about 100,000 words in the English language, and now there are more than 500,000 words. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 07:59, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Happy in that we are not over-happy;
On Fortune's cap we are not the very button.

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), Hamlet, Act II, Scene II, Guildenstern (1623). Fortune was personified in the form of the Roman goddess Fortuna, often pictured with a wheel (The Wheel of Fortune Latin: Rota Fortunae). Guildenstern uses this metaphor to describe his state and make a sexual joke about dwelling neither at the top nor the bottom of Fortun(a[e]), but rather in her middle parts. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 07:33, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure about the third and last links I used. The third, Wikipedia:1984, is a comparison of Nineteen Eighty-Four and Wikipedia (in the sense of an unattainable perfect society = paradise of arbors). There are two pages, Wikipedia:Songs about Wikipedia/Wiki Paradise and Wikipedia:Songs about Wikipedia/Users Paradise, referencing to Weird Al" Yankovic's "Amish Paradise", which is a parody of the "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio (which itself is a reworking of the Stevie Wonder song "Pastime Paradise" featured on his 1976 album: Songs in the Key of Life (a re-re-reworking or a copy of a copy of a copy ~ lol). Anyway, I was unable to use them. Imho, the last link fits perfectly, but there is a problem. That article is on blog.wikimedia.org website and actually there is not an Interiki link for it, so I had to use <span class="plainlinks">[external_link ...]</span> for not showing the right arrow at the end of the link. –pjoef (talkcontribs) 12:54, 19 July 2011 (UTC)
