    Our little systems have their day;
    They have their day and cease to be:

    And thou, O Lord, art more than they.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    It has been an unchallengeable American doctrine that cranberry sauce, a pink goo with overtones of sugared tomatoes, is a delectable necessity of the Thanksgiving board and that turkey is uneatable without it....

    If with too credent ear you list his songs,
    Or lose your heart, or your chaste treasure open
    To his unmastered importunity.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
