Merit: The Person or their Title?


“I weigh the man, not his title; ‘tis not the king’s stampcan make the metal better or heavier.”

William Wycherley (1640-1715)

From his play ‘The Plain Dealer’, which is a Restoration comedy first performed on 11 December 1676, and is based on Molière’s Le Misanthrope.
