English.png English text

Tell me, where is Fancy bred,
Or in the heart, or in the head?
How begot, how nourishèd?
     Reply! reply!
It is engender’d in the eyes,
With gazing fed; and Fancy dies
In the cradle where it lies.
     Let us all ring Fancy’s knell:
     I’ll begin it,— Ding, dong, bell.

The Merchant of Venice
Act 3, Scene 2
