BOATSWAIN: Down with the topmast! Yare! lower, lower! Bring her to try with main-course. [A cry within] A plague upon this howling! they are louder than the weather or our office. [Re-enter SEBASTIAN, ANTONIO, and GONZALO] Yet again! what do you here? Shall we give o’er and drown? Have you a mind to sink?
– William Shakespeare
