William Shakespeare
“What win I, if I gain the thing I seek?
A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy.
Who buys a minute's mirth to wail a week?
Or sells eternity to get a toy?
For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy?
Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown,
Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?”
William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece

William Shakespeare

For what they have not, that which they possess
They scatter and unloose it from their bond,

Is but to surfeit, and such griefs sustain,
That they prove bankrupt in this poor-rich gain.”
William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece

Save Me, save only Me?
All which I took from thee I did but take,
Not for thy harms.

All which thy child's mistake
Fancies as lost, I have stored for thee at home;
Rise, clasp My hand, and come!”
