    When I said I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    But some who this blithe mood present,
    As on in lightsome files they fare,
    Shall die experienced ere three days be spent—
    Perish, enlightened by the vollied glare;
    Or shame survive, and, like to adamant,
    Thy after shock, Manassas, share.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    No, the wren goes to’t, and the small gilded fly
    Does lecher in my sight. Let copulation thrive.
