I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream; past the wit of man to say what dream it was. Methought I was---man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream. Methought I was---and methought I had---man is but a patched fool if he will offer to say
what methought I was and what methought I had.
Hermia, the course of true love never did run smooth.
Lord, what fools these mortals be!
