The Mourning Cries of Birds
"The night has been unruly. Where we lay,
Our chimneys were blown down, and, as they say,
Lamentings heard i' th' air, strange screams of death,
And prophesying with accents terrible
Of dire combustion and confused events
New hatched to th' woeful time:
the obscure bird
Clamored the livelong night.
Some say, the earth
Was feverous and did shake."
Act I Scene III, 48-50

His hopes 'bove wisdom, grace, and fear:
And all know security
Is mortals' chiefest enemy."
