Thursday Quotables is a weekly book meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies, showcasing your favourite book quote of the week. This week, I’ve been reading Monstrous Little Voices: New Tales from Shakespeare’s Fantasy World.
“…Angels and pins, caves and chairs. What does it matter? A man’s nature may be determined from his actions, so therefore his actions may be said to be his nature.”
“Yes, but what is the truth beneath?”
“Truth is truth,” she said. “Beneath, above, inward, outward.”
“You say that, who saw me as a woman yesterday.”
“And were you any different, when I saw you as something else than what you are? Would you have acted any differently than you had? You cannot seek your nature, you can only make it, moment by moment.”
The Course of True Love — Act III
This was a great quote that just got me thinking Wow, what a truth! What we are is our nature, which can be ever evolving and changing. Certainly puts things in a whole new perspective!
