QUOTE (William Shakespeare) – April 26

April 26, 2014

William Shakespeare

“Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
’twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed.”
~ William Shakespeare, Othello

In honor of William Shakespeare, considered the greatest writer in English literature, who was baptized on this day in 1564.
