In poetry:

See where the Thames, the purest stream
That wavers to the noon-day beam,
Divides the vale below;
While like a vein of liquid ore
His waves enrich the happy shore,
Still shining as they flow.
"See Where The Thames, The Purest Stream" by William Cowper

A two-fold poet, I
Shall on strong wing be upward borne
Above the liquid sky;
No more shall earth my spirit bind—
To heav'n I'll soar, and envy leave behind.
"From Horace: Book II:Ode II" by Peter John Allan

Which might an eastern empire buy,
Unvalued here and fruitless fall;
No art the season can renew
When love was young, and DAMON true;
No tears a wandering heart recall.

The dark retreated; the morning spread;
His creatures their shapes resume;
The plaster stares dumb-white and dead;
A faint blue liquid bloom
Lies on each marble bosom and head;
To his Psyche clings the gloom.

When the arousing call of Morn
Breaks o'er the hills, and Day, new-born,
Comes smiling from the purple East,
And the pure streams of liquid light
Bathe all the earth—renewed and bright,
Uprising from its dream of rest—
"Morning" by John Bowring
Whoever you are! you are he or she for whom the earth is solid and
You are he or she for whom the sun and moon hang in the sky,
For none more than you are the present and the past,
For none more than you is immortality.
"Carol Of Words" by Walt Whitman

In science:

As mentioned in the introduction a definition of simple liquids is most useful if it identifies their real essence , the underlying fundamental characteristic from which these liquids’ simple features, their nominal essences, follow.
What constitutes a simple liquid?
We suggest below that the class of simple liquids is to be identified with the class of strongly correlating liquids (Sec.
What constitutes a simple liquid?
This gives three very different but equivalent characterizations, indicating that the class of strongly correlating liquids is fundamental and further motivating the suggestion that the real essence of liquid simplicity is the existence of strong correlations of virial/potentialenergy equilibrium N V T fluctuations.
What constitutes a simple liquid?
By connecting to the chemists’ concept of non-associated liquids we then discuss which real-world liquids are simple (Sec.
What constitutes a simple liquid?
Moreover, the effective temperature of a glass prepared by a temperature-density jump from an equilibrium state of a strongly correlating liquid depends only on the final density ; this provides yet another example of a simple feature of these liquids.
