Quintessence of Dust

A quick nod to The Bard, born on this date in 1564.

“What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason. How infinite in faculties. In form and moving, how express and admirable. In action, how like an angel. In apprehension, how like a god. The beauty of the world, the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me.”

- from Hamlet, Act II, Scene 2
