    Laugh, and the world laughs with you;

    Give us that grand word “woman” once again,
    And let’s have done with “lady”; one’s a term
    Full of fine force, strong, beautiful, and firm,
    Fit for the noblest use of tongue or pen;
    And one’s a word for lackeys.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)

    Feast, and your halls are crowded;
    Fast, and the world goes by.
