Thank you, but that's not it either. I read that one a couple weeks back, and also that's not the quote.

“If there were a sympathy in choice, War, death, or sickness, did lay siege to it, Making it momentary as a sound, Swift as a shadow, short as any dream, Brief as the lightning in the collied night That, in a spleen, unfolds both heaven and earth, And ere a man hath power to say 'Behold!' The jaws of darkness do devour it up; So quick bright things come to confusion.” - William Shakespeare

'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (1595-6) act 1, sc. 1, l. 141
