Shakespeare’s answer to the euro crisis by Peter Baxter
In Germany and France the best of rank and station
Are most select and generous, chief in that
neither a borrower nor a lender be;
for loans oft lose both itself and its friends
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou cannot then lend to anyone,
so farewell and my blessings upon you,
And beware the Greeks bearing gifts.
