Line(s) of the Day #TheDuchessofMalfi

The Duchess of Malfi - John Webster

Whether we fall by ambition, blood, or lust,
Like diamonds, we are cut with our own dust

As quoted by Ferdinand in The Duchess of Malfi (1612 – 1613) by John Webster, one of the great early writers. Though I’ve yet to read it, I’ve always been struck by this quote since seeing it on Amy’s blog, where she quoted it again recently.
