    Hark, all you ladies that do sleep!
    The fairy queen
    Bids you awake, and pity them that weep.
    You may do in the dark
    What the day doth forbid.
    Fear not the dogs that bark;
    Night will have all hid.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)

    A friend to all is a friend to none.
    18th century English proverb, collected in Thomas Fuller, Gnomologia (1732)

    Kind are her answers,
    But her performance keeps no day;
    Breaks time, as dancers,
    From their own music when they stray.
