„Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate.
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.“

As short as are the nights
Wherein you spend your folly!
There's naught in this life sweet
But only melancholy;
