Are of imagination all compact:

One sees more devils than vast hell can hold

That is, the madman: the lover, all as frantic,

Sees Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt.

The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling,

Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven:

And, as imagination bodies forth

The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen

Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing

A local habitation and a name."-Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 5.
