Quote of the Day (William Shakespeare, on Reason vs. Vengeance)

“Yet with my nobler reason 'gaitist my fury
Do I take part: the rarer action is
 In virtue than in vengeance.”— ‎English playwright-poet William Shakespeare (1564-1616), The Tempest (1610-1611)

The wisdom of maturity—Prospero’s as well as Shakespeare’s—is summed up in these lines. Too bad that far too many people in public life fail to realize or practice it.
