'Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh.'

-- Ecclesiastes i, 2

'Now my charms are all o'erthrown, And what strength I have's mine own, Which is most faint:... Now I want Spirits to enforce, art to enchant'
-- The Tempest Epilogue
