NUMBER:1513
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:Do not, as some ungracious pastors do,
Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven;
Whiles, like a puff’d and reckless libertine,
Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads,
And recks not his own rede. 1
ATTRIBUTION:Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.  [text]
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection.
 
Note 1.
And may you better reck the rede,
Than ever did the adviser.
Robert Burns: Epistle to a Young Friend. [back]
