Text heard on Sample:
Tell me where is fancy bred,
Or in the heart, or in the head?
How begot, how nourishèd?
Reply, reply.
It is engender’d in the eyes,
With gazing fed;
and fancy dies,
In the cradle where it lies.
Let us all ring fancy’s knell;
I’ll begin it, --ding, dong, bell.

William Shakespeare
