    1594 Thrice-blessed they that master so their blood
    To undergo such maiden pilgrimage:
    But earthlier happy is the rose distill'd
    Than that which, withering on the virgin thorn,
    Grows, lives, and dies, in single blessedness.
    — Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 1, Scene 1.
