William Shakespeare (c. 1564 [?] – 1616)
“To say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays; the more the pity, that some honest neighbors will not make them friends.”
- From William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act III, scene 1, approximately between lines 230-240). The edition used here is the Wolfgang Clemen and Sylvan Barnet version (Signet Classic/New American Library, 1963, 1964).
