Dagger of the Mind
Is this a dagger which I see before me?
The handle towards my hand?
Come, let me clutch thee!
I have thee not but yet I see thee still.
Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight?
Or art thou but a dagger of the mind,
A false creation proceeding from the heat oppressed brain?
by William Shakespeare
