-->''And may her bridegroom bring her to a house\\
Where all's accustomed, ceremonious;\\
For arrogance and hatred are the wares\\
Peddled in the thoroughfares.\\
How but in custom and in ceremony\\
Are innocence and beauty born?\\
Ceremony's a name for the rich horn,\\
And custom for the spreading laurel tree. ''
--->--'''Creator/WilliamButlerYeats''', ''A Prayer For My Daughter''
