The merciless Macdonwald (Worthy to be a rebel, for, to that, The multiplying villainies of nature Do swarm upon him) from the Western Isles Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied; And Fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling, Showed like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak: For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name) Disdaining Fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valour's minion, Carv'd out his passage.
All's well that ends well.Divers Proverbs, Nathan Bailey, 1721
The child alone a poet is: Spring and Fairyland are his. Truth and Reason show but dim, And All's poetry with him.Robert Graves, in "Babylon" in Fairies and Fusiliers (1917)
