    Of cloudy silver sprinkles in your gown
    Its venom of renown, and on your head
    No crown is simpler than the simple hair.

    ‘Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
    The sword, the mace, the crown imperial,
    The intertissued robe of gold and pearl,
    ...

    Can sleep so soundly as the wretched slave
    Who with a body filled and vacant mind
    Gets him to rest, crammed with distressful bread.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
