In poetry:

Here is one by which we gather,
On this bright and happy day,
Just to bask beside a fountain
Making gladder life's highway.

A welcome guest home with him bore!
Then rose the Satan of rebuke
And loudly spake beside the door:

That seeks its regal way to bar;
Seeming with conscious power to grow,
And sweeter, purer, gladder glow.

To make the world within our reach
Somewhat the better for our living,
And gladder for our human speech.

Art thou not somewhat gladder grown
To feel my feet upon this shore?
O love, thou shalt not long be lone.”
"Love's Reward" by William Morris
Such have lived–and in sorrow. The greater the mind
The wider and deeper the grief it can find.
The richer, the gladder, the more thou canst feel
The keen stings that a lifetime is sure to reveal. O my child! Must thou suffer?
"Mother To Child" by Charlotte Perkins Stetson Gilman

In science:

Similarly, the color cut used by Gladders & Yee (2000) in their red-sequence detection method can transform a 2σ fluctuation in galaxy counts (due to a z ∼ 1 cluster) into a 5σ fluctuation.
Multi-wavelength Surveys for Distant Clusters
These results are consistent with other recent measurements of cosmic shear (van Waerbeke et al. 2002, Refregier, Rhodes & Groth 2002, Hoekstra, Yee & Gladders 2002).
Weak Lensing as a Calibrator of the Cluster Mass-Temperature Relation
On the other hand, recent weak lensing results (van Waerbeke et al. 2002, Bacon et al. 2002, Refregier, Rhodes & Groth 2002, Hoekstra, Yee & Gladders 2002) tend to favor a higher value of σ8 .
Weak Lensing as a Calibrator of the Cluster Mass-Temperature Relation
Secondly, Gladders & Yee (2000) are embarked on a large–area (100deg2 ), two–passband, optical survey in search of high redshift clusters.
Large-Scale Structure Studies with Clusters of Galaxies
Do we? The Red Cluster Sequence method described by Mike Gladders seems the most promising of the optical methods.
