I have touched the highest point of all my greatness.
SHAKS.: _Henry VIII.,_ Act iii., Sc. 2.
Rightly to be great,
Is, not to stir without great argument,
But greatly to find quarrel in a straw,
When honor's at the stake.
SHAKS.: _Hamlet,_ Act iv., Sc. 4.
Great hearts have largest room to bless the small;
Strong natures give the weaker home and rest.
LUCY LARCOM: _Sonnet, The Presence._
