Tuesday, November 11, 2014

For my part, if a lie may do thee grace, I'll gild it with the happiest terms I have.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Prince Hal, in Henry IV, Part 1, act 5, sc. 4, l. 157-8. Falstaff claims to have killed Hotspur, and Hal does not expose the lie; "do thee grace" means bring you credit.
