    Go! dive into the Southern Sea, and when
    Th’ast found, to trouble the nice sight of men,
    A swelling pearl, and such whose single worth
    Boasts all the wonders which the seas bring forth,
    Give it Endymion’s love, whose ev’ry tear
    Would more enrich the skilful jeweller.
    Sir William Davenant (1606–1668)

    Oh my son’s my son till he gets him a wife,
    But my daughter’s my daughter all her life.
    —Dinah Maria Mulock Craik (1826–1887)
