from Othello

William Shakespeare
A horizontal poster with a colorful mosaic at the top features an excerpt from Othello by William Shakespeare

Act 3. sc. 3.

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
Who steals my purse steals trash; tis something, nothing;
Twas mine, tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him
And makes me poor indeed.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616).
