Dear Geralyn:

W.S. says no such thing; the lines belong to Lorenzo in The Merchant of
Venice, a character whose own trustworthiness surely needs to be
questioned given his status as golddigger and thief.  And while we are
on the subject, would you say that W.S. also endorses/identifies with
Orsino's love for music at the start of 12th Night?  Aren't we rather
meant to consider Orsino the prototype of the modern major egotist?, and
his love for the moody music of love as the echo effect of his
narcissism?
