|AUTHOR:||William Shakespeare (15641616)|
Of entrance to a quarrel; but being in,
Bear t that the opposed may beware of thee.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Take each mans censure, but reserve thy judgment.
Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not expressd in fancy; rich, not gaudy;
For the apparel oft proclaims the man.
