    You don’t know what you might be if you would look beyond the ball, the opera, the fashion-plate—and right over the heads of the perfumed, mustached bipeds who call themselves men and worship at your feet.

    Lift not thy spear against the Muses’ bower:
    The great Emathian conqueror bid spare
    The house of Pindarus, when temple and tower
    Went to the ground; and the repeated air
    Of sad Electra’s poet had the power
    To save the Athenian walls from ruin bare.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
