  • "CORIOLANUS: I will go wash;

    And when my face is fair you shall perceive

    Whether I blush or no: howbeit, I thank you;--

    I mean to stride your steed; and at all times

    To undercrest your good addition

    To the fairness of my power."

    - William Shakespeare, 'The Tragedy of Coriolanus'.
