      Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror
        But when it first did help to wound itself.
          Now these her princes are come home again,

                If England to itself do rest but true.

Gentle breath of yours my sails
  Must fill, or else my project fails,
    Which was to please. Now I want

          Unless I be relieved by prayer,
            Which pierces so that it assaults
              Mercy itself and frees all faults.
                As you from crimes would pardoned be,
                  Let your indulgence set me free.
      - William Shakespeare, The Tempest
         (Prospero at epilogue)

Lords, I protest my soul is full of woe
  That blood should sprinkle me to make me grow.
    Come, mourn with me for what I do lament,
      And put sullen black incontinent.
        I'll make a voyage to the Holy Land
          To wash this blood off from my guilty hand.
            March sadly after. Grace my mournings here
              In weeping after this untimely bier.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (King Richard at V, vi)

Abate the edge of traitors, gracious Lord,
  That would reduce these bloody days again
    And make poor England weep in streams of blood!
      Let them not live to taste this land's increase

            That she may long live here, God say amen!

Please you, I'll tell you as we pass along,

As for that ravenous tiger, Tamora,
  No funeral rite, nor man in mourning weeds,
    No mournful bell shall ring her burial;
      But throw her forth to beasts and birds to prey.
        Her life was beastly and devoid of pity,
          And being dead, let birds on he take pity!
            [See justice done on Aaron, that damned Moor,
              By whom our heavy haps had their beginning.
                Then, afterwards, to order well the state,
                  That like events may ne'er it ruinate.]
      - William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus

A great while ago the world begun,
  With hey, ho, the wind and the rain;

      And we'll strive to please you every day.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Duke at V, i)

I do not say that John or Jonathan will realize all this; but such is the character of that morrow which mere lapse of time can never make to dawn. The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.
      - Henry David Thoreau, Walden [1854]

If the reader thinks he is done, now, and that this book has no moral to it, he is in error. The moral of it is this: If you are of any account, stay at home and make your way by faithful diligence; but if you are "no account," go away from home, and then you will have to work, whether you want to or not. Thus you become a blessing to your friends by ceasing to be a nuisance to them--if the people you go among suffer by the operation.
      - Mark Twain (pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens),
        Roughing It [1872]
