Prophecy
 
  Ancestral voices prophesying war.
Coleridge.    
  1
        O my prophetic soul!
My uncle!
Shakespeare.    
  2
  I shall always consider the best guesser the best prophet.
Cicero.    
  3
        The prophet’s mantle, ere his flight began,
Dropt on the world—a sacred gift to man.
Campbell.    
  4
        Thy voice sounds like a prophet’s word;
And in its hollow tones are heard
The thanks of millions yet to be.
Fitz-Greene Halleck.

        Of all the horrid, hideous notes of woe,
Sadder than owl-songs or the midnight blast;
Is that portentous phrase, “I told you so.”
Byron.    
  6
        There is a history in all men’s lives,
Figuring the nature of the times deceas’d,
The which observed, a man may prophesy
With a near aim, of the main chance of things
As yet not come to life, which in their seeds
And weak beginnings lie intreasured.
Shakespeare.
