This most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this
brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden
fire....What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason!
how infinite in faculties! in form and moving, how express and
admirable in action, how like an angel! in apprehension, how
like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of the animals!
And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?
- Shakespeare, Hamlet,1604
