Here’s a little speech from Shake-speare, lending us a thought for today. Apply it as you may:
There is a history in all men’s lives,
Figuring the natures of the time deceased,
The which observed, a man may prophesy,
With near aim, the main chance of things
As yet not come to life, who in their seeds
And weak beginning lie in-treasured.
Such things become the hatch and brood of time.
- Henry IV, part two, 3.1, the Earl of Warwick
