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 moonor rather the sun and not the moon, for it shines bright and never changes, but keeps his course truly.
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.
