They that have power to hurt, and will do none,
That do not do the thing they most do show,
Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;
They rightly do inherit heaven's graces,
And husband nature's riches from expense;
They are the lords and owners of their faces,
Others, but stewards of their excellence.
The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
Though to itself, it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester, smell far worse than weeds.

Fantasy Dinner Party Guests

William Shakespeare: (Come on, with this domain name, did you think he wouldn't be there?). A moment in his presence would be divine. I'd love to listen to his tales of The Globe and Elizabethan society.
Livia Drusilla: Wife of the Roman Emperor Augustus, she has been popularised as a murderess. It would be interesting to find out if she really was a skilled poisoner, and as beautiful as was claimed.
Germaine Greer: Feminist literary critic. Outspoken and always controversial, she'd ensure the evening went with an intellectually stimulating bang.
Fred Astaire: So the evening could end with the last Waltz, impeccably danced.
