from the Archives: Famished Craving - Part 56

A strange fellow here
Writes me: 'That man, how dearly ever parted,
How much in having, or without or in,
Cannot make boast to have that which he hath,
Nor feels not what he owes, but by reflection;
As when his virtues shining upon others
Heat them and they retort that heat again
To the first giver.

Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida Act 3 scene 3
