When to elect there is but one,
  'Tis Hobson's Choice; take that or none.
      - Thomas Ward, England's Reformation
         (canto IV, l. 896),
        "Hobson's Choice" explained in the "Spectator" no. 509

Great God! I'd rather be
  A Pagan, suckled in a creed outworn;
    So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
      Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
        Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea,
          Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
      - William Wordsworth, Miscellaneous Sonnets
         (pt. I, sonnet XXXIII)

A strange alternative . . .
  Must women have a doctor or a dance?
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire V, l. 189)
