What is earthly concern?

Famous quotes containing the words concern and/or earthly:

    The weak are the most treacherous of us all. They come to the strong and drain them. They are bottomless. They are insatiable. They are always parched and always bitter. They are everyone’s concern and like vampires they suck our life’s blood.
    Bette Davis (1908–1989)

    I have done no harm. But I remember now
    I am in this earthly world, where to do harm
    Is often laudable, to good sometimes
    Accounted dangerous folly.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
