Wherefore art thou, Juliet?

“Seek not the dame and she will you –
A truth which of her sex is true.”

From Jean de la Fontaines’s fable ‘The man who ran after Fortune, and the man who waited for her in his bed.’

“To each the other ought to be
A world of beauty ever new;
In each the other ought to see
The whole of what is good and true.”

From the fable ‘The Two Doves’ by La Fontaine.
