I have done nothing but in care of thee.
Of thee, my dear one, thee, my daughter, who
Art ignorant of what thou art, naught knowing
Of whence I am, nor that I am more better
Than Prospero, master of a fool poor cell,
And thy no greater father.
– William Shakespeare
The Tempest, Act 1, Scene 2. Responding to Miranda who is upset over him creating a storm and causing a shipwreck, Prospero claims that he did nothing except out of love for her. He then proceeds to tell her who he and she really are and how they came to be on the island.
