"We can say with Shakespeare: 'Why bastard, wherefore base? When my dimensions are as well compact, My mind as generous, and my shape as true, As honest madam's issue? Why brand they us With base? with baseness? bastardy? base, base?' King Lear, Act I, Scene 2" LEVY v. LOUISIANA, 391 U.S. 68, 72 n. 6 (1968).
