    And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

    The man whose silent days
    In harmless joys are spent,
    Whom hopes cannot delude,
    Nor sorrow discontent:

    That man needs neither towers
    Nor armour for defence,
    Nor secret vaults to fly
    From thunder’s violence.

    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)
