She shines not upon fools, lest the reflection should hurt her

From Cymbeline (1.2):

First Lord
Sir, as I told you always, her beauty and her brain
go not together: she’s a good sign, but I have seen
small reflection of her wit.
Second Lord
[Aside] She shines not upon fools, lest the
reflection should hurt her.
