On Shakespearean wisdom

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."
William Shakespeare
Hmm...half a millenium old and still oh so relevant.

if you 'love all' why would you just trust a few? Call me weird but I couldn't love all unless I trusted... or am I taking this too literal? :-)

No Kalei your're not, but sometimes you'll find in life there is always that one someone who may not deserve your love, but love them anyway, and great doors or windows open. It may make a difference. Of course even then in some few cases you must simply do no wrong and just walk away. Life is like a box of chocolates isn't it?

Great line and there's so much in it. Shakespeare has the Duchesse give the advice to her son Bertram.

He is later 'won' into a marriage he doesn't want by the Duchesse's servant Helena.

He scoots off to a war, philanders but then is tricked into bed by Helena.

They do get back together, but there's a big 'If' at the end of "All's well that ends well."
