This above all, to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
– Polonius, chief counselor to the king, in Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Act 1 Scene. NB: In view of the surging enthusiasm for the Doctor Who series, we would be remiss not to point out actor David Tennant’s critically-hailed portrayal of the titular gloomy Danish prince for BBC television.
