"One Day in much good Company I was asked by a Person of Quality, whether I had seen any of their Struldbruggs or Immortals. I said I had not, and desired he would explain to me what he meant by such an Appelation applied to a mortal Creature. He told me that sometimes, though very rarely, a Child happened to be born in a Family with a red circular Spot on the Forehead, directly over the left Eyebrow, which was an infallible Mark that it should never die.

From Jonathan Swift's 'Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver.'
