    I would detain you here some month or two
      Before you venture for me.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice

  Is loosened, and the nations echo round,
    Shaken to their roots, as do the mountains now.

    With thoughts too swift and strong for one lone human breast.
