"We are more afraid of excellence than of failure." -Marianne Williamson, A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

About Portia of Belmont:

"The full some of me is something...happy in this, she is not yet so old but she may learn; happier than this; she is not bred so dull but she can learn. I never did repent for doing good, nor shall not now...Here in [my] hairs, the painter plays the spider, and hath woven a golden mesh t'entrap the hearts of men...This comes too near the praising of myself; therefore no more of it." (The Merchant of Venice, III.ii, 161-6; III.iv,10-11; III.ii, 124-6; III.iv, 22-3)
