A Quote by William Shakespeare on boldness, honor, life, loyalty, men, mortality, reputation, and spirit

The purest treasure mortal times afford Is spotless reputation; that away, Men are but gilded loam or painted clay. A jewel in a ten-times-barr'd-up chest Is a bold spirit in a loyal breast. Mine honour is my life; both grow in one; Take honour from me, and my life is done.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
