Ought thy remembrance and perpetual band
Be to thy foster child, that from thy hand
Did common breath and nouriture receive?
How brutish is it not to understand
How much to her we owe that all us gave,
That gave unto us all whatever good we have.
- Spenser.Bryant, A. (1955 ) Makers of the Realm, William Clowes & sons, London, p.7.
