"A good leg ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare
Warwickshire
Tuesday, November 11, 2014
A good leg will fall, a straight back will stoop, a black beard will turn white, a fair face will wither, a full eye will wax hollow, but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and the moon—or rather the sun and not the moon, for it shines bright and never changes, but keeps his course truly.
William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. King Henry, in Henry V, act 5, sc. 2, l. 162-3. Henry is wooing Princess Katherine of France, who doesn't understand much English.
