Quote by William Shakespeare
Send danger from the east unto the west, so honor cross it from the north to south.
This quote suggests that as danger or threats arise from one direction, honor and righteousness should spread and counterbalance them from opposite directions. It showcases the idea of resolving conflict and maintaining balance in the world. Whether danger comes from the east or west, and honor from the north or south, the quote emphasizes the importance of fostering honor and integrity to confront and overcome challenges, ensuring equilibrium and harmony in society.
