I finished rereading the first part of Tamburlaine the Great last night. I had forgotten what a kickass chick Zenocrate was: she's about the sole voice of reason and justice in the play, for all she has her bad moments too.

Nobly resolv'd, my good Ortygius.
And since we all have suckt one wholsome aire,
And with the same proportion of Elements
Resolve, I hope we are resembled,
Vowing our loves to equall death and life.

--Christopher Marlowe, Tamburlaine the Great Part 1, Act II scene vi
