Shakespeare sez

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?

                                            -Hamlet, Act 2, scene 2, 303–312, by William Shakespeare
