The eternal Goodness, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
“Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate.
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.”
The Honest Man's Fortune, (1613; published 1647)
