Not shriving time allowed" (Shakespeare) "The spirit that I seen
May be the devil; and the devil hath power
To assume a pleasing shape; yea, and perhaps
Out of my weaknesses, and my melancholy,
As he is very potent with such spirits,
Abuses me to damn me." (Shakespeare) "Do not forget this visitation is but whet thy almost blunted purpose" (Shakespeare)
