Methinks I am a prophet new inspired
  And thus, expiring, do foretell of him:
    His rash fierce blaze of riot cannot last,
      For violent fires soon burn out themselves;
        Small show'rs last long, but sudden storms are short;
          He tires betimes that spurs too fast betimes;
            With eager feeding doth choke the feeder;
              Light vanity, insatiate cormorant,
                Consuming means, soon preys upon itself.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (Gaunt at II, i)
