    Humans are amphibians—half spirit and half animal.... As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time.
    —C.S. (Clive Staples)

    Violence upon the roads: violence of horses;
    Some few have handsome riders, are garlanded

    Herodias’ daughters have returned again.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
