Your worm is your only emperor for diet

28 Apr

Your worm is your only emperor for diet: we fat all creatures else to fat us, and we fat ourselves for maggots: your fat king and your lean beggar is but variable service, – two dishes, but to one table: that`s the end.

good name in man and woman

25 Apr

Good name in man and woman is the immediate jewel of their souls.Who steals my purse steals trash; It is something, nothing; It was mine, it is 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.

Reputation quote

Reputation is an idle and most false imposition, oft got without merit and lost without deserving.You have lost no reputation at all unless you repute yourself such a loser.

Will quote

24 Apr

Our bodies are our gardens, to the which our wills are gardeners; so that if we will plant nettles or sow lettuce, set hyssop and weed up thyme, supply it with one gender of herbs or distract it with many – either to have it sterile with idleness or manured with industry – why, the power and corrigible authority of this lies in our wills. If the beam of our lives had not one scale of reason to poise another of sensuality, the blood and baseness of our natures would conduct us to most preposterous conclusions.But we have reason to cool our raging motions, our carnal stings or unbitted lusts; whereof I take this that you call love to be a sect  or scion.
