"1st Lady Madam ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

1st Lady. Madam, we'll tell tales. Queen. Of sorrow or of joy? 1st Lady. Of either, madam. Queen. Of neither, girl. For if of joy, being altogether wanting, It doth remember me the more of sorrow. Or if of grief, being altogether had, It adds more sorrow to my want of joy.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. 1st Lady and Queen, in Richard II, act 3, sc. 4, l. 10-16. "Remember" means remind.
