"He who gives way to violent gestures will increase his rage: he who does not control the signs of fear will experience fear in a greater degree; and he who remains passive when overwhelmed with grief loses his best chance of recovering elasticity of mind."
— Darwin, Charles (1809-1882)
"Is it not monstrous that this player here,
But in a fiction, in a dream of passion,
[End Page 367] Could force his soul to his own conceit,
That, from her working, all his visage wann'd;
Tears in his eyes, distraction in's aspect,
A broken voice, and his whole function suiting
With forms ot his conceit? And all for nothing!"
Hamlet, act ii. sc. 2.
