More quotes by Petit-Senn, Jean-Antoine

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;
‘Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him
And makes me poor indeed.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) English dramatist and poet
Othello, Act 3, sc. 3, l. 155-161 [Iago] (1604)
