    Hi there,

    " Our remedies in ourselves do lie
    which we ascribe to heaven."

    Does anyone know what Shakespeare meant by that?

    Thank you

    We credit God and Heaven for the overcoming of problems we face, but in fact we ovecome such problems through our own strength.

    In other words, God helps those who help themselves.
