More great quotes from Measure for Measure: June 10, 2012 12:00 AM | Tagged as goodness, goodness, hope, leadership, measure for measure, quotes, tyranny, virtue
I will start with a quote that every leader should learn to live by: 

O! it is excellent
To have a giant's strength, but it is tyrannous
To use it like a giant. (2.2.107)

The law hath not been dead, though it hath slept. (2.2.112)

But man, proud man,
Drest in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he ’s most assured,
His glassy essence, like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven
As make the angels weep. (2.2.117)

Is this her fault or mine?
The tempter or the tempted, who sins most? (2.2.162)

The miserable have no other medicine
But only hope. (3.1.2)

The sense of death is most in apprehension;
And the poor beetle, that we tread upon,
In corporal sufferance finds a pang as great
As when a giant dies. (3.1.85)

The weariest and most loathed worldly life
That age, ache, penury, and imprisonment
Can lay on nature, is a paradise
To what we fear of death. (3.1.123)

The hand that hath made you fair hath made you good. (3.1.182)

And I will end on a strong one to use for life: 

                Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful. (3.1.214)
