A Quote by Sir John Denham on brothers, fame, guilt, men, needs, security, and sons

But whither am I strayed? I need not raise Trophies to thee from other men's dispraise; Nor is thy fame on lesser ruins built; Nor needs thy juster title the foul guilt Of Eastern kings, who, to secure their reign, Must have their brothers, sons, and kindred slain.

Sir John Denham (1615 - 1668)
