|AUTHOR:||William Shakespeare (15641616)|
|QUOTATION:||All things that are,|
Are with more spirit chased than enjoyd.
How like a younker or a prodigal
The scarfed bark puts from her native bay,
Huggd and embraced by the strumpet wind!
How like the prodigal doth she return,
With over-weatherd ribs and ragged sails,
Lean, rent, and beggard by the strumpet wind!
