    They say miracles are past, and we have our philosophical
    persons, to make modern and familiar, things supernatural
    and causeless. Hence is it that we make trifles of terrors,

    submit ourselves to an unknown fear.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    O sairer, sairer akes my head;
    And sairer, sairer ever will,
    The maiden crys, ‘till you be dead.
