Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drench'd our steeples, drown'd the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Strike flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's moulds, all germens spill at once,
That make ingrateful man!- King Lear (Act 3, Scene 1)

OriginEdit

King Lear is a Tragedy by William Shakespeare, It is based on the possibly mythical King Leir of Britain. In the play, King Lear is now too old to rule his kingdom and splits the kingdom to his three daughters. When asked on how much each daughter loves him, The eldest and the second daughter flatter him saying that they both loves hime above all else. While his last daughter refuses to say anything but she truly loves his father. Lear is angered by this and banishes his youngest daughter. The King then decides to maintain a retinue of a hundred knights and would live alternately between the castles of his daughters. Secretly his first and second daughter thinks that he is an old fool and both of them forcefully reduced the Kings retinue and refuses to grant shelter from a coming storm. The emotion stired by this event gave birth to this artifact.
