I shall see
The wingèd vengeance overtake such children.

– William Shakespeare

King Lear, Act 3, Scene 7. Gloucester believes that divine vengeance will eventually be served on Lear’s children Goneril and Regan for their cruelty, foreshadowing their punishment later in the play. A defiant Gloucester says this just moments before he is blinded in a particularly brutal act by Regan’s husband Cornwall.
