i want to use this as a title and/or epigram for something

MARK ANTONY: Fulvia is dead.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: Sir?

MARK ANTONY: Fulvia is dead.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: Fulvia!

MARK ANTONY: Dead.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: Why, sir, give the gods a thankful sacrifice. When
it pleaseth their deities to take the wife of a man
from him, it shows to man the tailors of the earth;
comforting therein, that when old robes are worn
out, there are members to make new. If there were
no more women but Fulvia, then had you indeed a cut,
and the case to be lamented: this grief is crowned
with consolation; your old smock brings forth a new
petticoat: and indeed the tears live in an onion
that should water this sorrow.

Shakespeare, Anthony and Cleopatra, I.ii
