“When a wise man gives thee better counsel,
give me mine again.
I would have none but knaves follow it, since a fool gives it.
That sir which serves and seeks for gain,
And follows but for form,
Will pack when it begins to rain
And leave thee in the storm.
But I will tarry; the fool will stay,
And let the wise man fly.
The knave turns fool that runs away;
The fool no knave, perdy.”
–From William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of King Lear, as spoken by John Hurt in the 1983 production
2017 has already claimed John Hurt and Mary Tyler Moore. This year already sucks.
