Shakespeare's The Tempest
Gonzalo is sailing through a stormy sea that
threatens to capsize his vessel. He reminds the boatswain that the king of
Naples is a passenger, crying, "Remember whom thou hast aboard!" The
boatswain replies, "None that I more love than myself." There are
so many who love no one so much as themselves — and they are to be pitied.
