"They say miracles ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

They say miracles are past, and we have our philosophical persons, to make modern and familiar, things supernatural and causeless. Hence is it that we make trifles of terrors, ensconcing ourselves into seeming knowledge, when we should submit ourselves to an unknown fear.

William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare (1564-1616), British dramatist, poet. Lafew, in All's Well That Ends Well, act 2, sc. 3, l. 1-6. On trusting what is awesome and inexplicable, rather than seeking explanations for everything; the miracle is Helena's cure of the King's sickness.
