Algernon Charles Swinburne Quote

I believe
Not more in God's word than in yours; and this
Not for your station's sake, nor yet your fame's,
How high soe'er the wind of war have blown
The splendour of your standard: but, my lord,
Your face and heart and speech, being one, require
Of any not base-born and servile-souled
Faith: and my faith I give you.


Calendaro, Act III, Sc. 1. - Marino Faliero (1885)
