  • "Call all your tribes together, praise the gods,

    And make triumphant fires; strew flowers before them:

    Unshout the noise that banish'd Marcius,

    Repeal him with the welcome of his mother;

    Cry, 'Welcome, ladies, welcome!'"

    - William Shakespeare, 'The Tragedy of Coriolanus'.
