    Where ill men were, and was the best of all
    Amongst the rar'st of good ones- sitting sadly

    For beauty that made barren the swell'd boast
    Of him that best could speak; for feature, laming
    The shrine of Venus or straight-pight Minerva,
    Postures beyond brief nature; for condition,
    A shop of all the qualities that man
    Loves woman for; besides that hook of wiving,
    Fairness which strikes the eye-
    CYMBELINE.
    (William Shakespeare, "")
