F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
"Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full

"Stars, hide your fires;
Let not light see my black and deep desires:
The eye wink at the hand; yet let that be,
Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see."
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
