Wisdom of the Great Bard (Shakespeare) & the Wiccan Rede via Sonnet 94

They that have power to hurt and will do none,
That do not do the thing they most do show,
Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow,
They rightly do inherit heaven's graces
And husband nature's riches from expense;
They are the lords and owners of their faces,
Others but stewards of their excellence.
The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
Though to itself it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.

Thank you for the lovely exerpt from Shakespeare. It is always nice to revisit the words of the wise from olde days. We tend to forget those and how deep and true the words can be even in our day and age.
Take a bow Gwynalda for bringing forth intense thoughts to me this morning and I am sure others as well.
Blessings!
