|Advice on William Blake's quotation?Page 1 of 1 |
|My guess is that when your words reflect whom you view, that reflection of a man having your low opinion would be unflattering to him.|
Blake: Let me get a good look at you and I will tell you exactly what I think of you.
Base Man: Um, no thanks, I will find someone else who can flatter me, instead. Bye!
Noble Man: By all means! Please tell me what's on your mind. I like hearing your opinion of me (of what I said).
The base man will hear that he is base. Base; being low, unworthy, common, bad, etc.
