A day in April never came so sweet, To show how costly summer was at hand, As this fore-spurrer comes before his lord.

If I have horns to make one mad, let the proverb go with me: I’ll be horn-mad. Francis Ford in Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor 3.5.45 Shakespeare’s Merry Wives is a bit of an odd play.

So every bondman in his own hand bears The power to cancel his captivity. Casca in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar I.iii.101-2 That’s just such an awesome piece of advice, on so many levels, to paraphrase, “Each of us has the keys to unlock that which binds us.” Casca’s version is a little prettier.
