Jewel of the Soul

20 03 2013
Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
Who steals my purse steals trash. ‘Tis something, nothing:
‘Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands.
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him
And makes me poor indeed.
William Shakespeare
(Othello Act 3 scene 3)
“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”
Proverbs 22:1
