Basement of Birth

A birth can come from
Body, mind, or fortune.

The deformities can be
Unlearned or circumstantial.

Seldom, said Plutarch, do
Honesty and beauty abide in each other.

Hannibal had only one eye, but the
Retina of the soul perceives the best—

Anyway. And Socrates was as
Hairy as an Ape.
