A Quote by William Shakespeare on glory, god, greatness, poverty, and spirit

GLOUCESTER: Yet so much is my poverty of spirit, So mighty and so many my defects, As I had rather hide me from my greatness, Being a bark to brook no mighty sea, Than in my greatness covet to be hid, And in the vapour of my glory smother'd. But God be thanked. . . .

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
