Goethe, Faust I.31-32 (tr. Walter Kaufman):
What I possess, seems far away to me,
And what is gone becomes reality.

Was ich besitze, seh ich wie im Weiten,
Und was verschwand, wird mir zu Wirklichkeiten.
The same, tr. David Luke:
All that I now possess seems far away
And vanished worlds are real to me today.
