Notes

  • Epigraph: Quintessence. What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, 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 the quintessence of dust? Shakespeare - Hamlet Act 2, Scene 2.
