    Mary Arrigo (20th century)

    Nature hath framed strange fellows in her time.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    All is possible,
    Who so list believe;
    Trust therefore first, and after preve,
    As men wed ladies by license and leave,
    All is possible.
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)
