CASSIUS (to Brutus about Caesar)

     Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
     Like a Colossus, and we petty men
     Walk under his huge legs and peep about
     To find ourselves dishonourable graves.
     Men at some time are masters of their fates:
     The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
     But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

"Julius Caesar" Act I, Scene 2

(or, as one jock said to the other in the locker room: "The fault lies not in the
stars but in ourselves that we are underthings)
