July 4, 2008: Richard II on impartiality - 0 Comments

"Now, by my scepre's awe, I make a vow,
Such neighbour-nearness to our sacred blood
Should nothing privilege him, nor partialize
The unstooping firmness of my upright soul:
He is our subject, Mowbray, so art thou;
Free speech and fearless I to thee allow."

- Shakes, King Richard II, 1595.
