Tell me where is fancy bred,Or in the heart or in the head?How begot, how nourished?

Reply, reply.It is engender’d in the eyes,

With gazing fed; and fancy diesIn the cradle, where it lies.

Let us all ring fancy’s knell;I’ll begin it – Ding, dong, bell.

Ding, dong, bell.

The Merchant of Venice

Act III, Scene 2
