ANGELS ARE BRIGHT STILL
"Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell." Macbeth.
"I charge thee; fling away ambition, by that sin fell the angels. How can man, then, the image of his Maker, hope to win by it? Love thyself last; cherish those hearts that hate thee; corruption wins not more than honesty. Still in thy right hand carry gentle peace, to silence envious tongues."
King Henry VIII: Cardinal Wolsey addressing Cromwell in Act 3, scene 2. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616).
