And a very nice quote for you as well! As you may know, it's from Henry IV, Part II, though the line is spoken by the newly-crowned Henry V. A bit more of the line:
. . . Presume not that I am the thing I was;
For God doth know, so shall the world perceive,
That I have turn'd away my former self . . .

Yep. Shakespeare's Henry IV parts I&II are some of my favorites from his collection. I saw the preview of their show at Chicago Shakespeare earlier this year as they prepared to go to the year-long RSC Shakespeare festival... and to my disappointment, the guy who played Falstaff was the understudy and he did not fully know his lines. He clutched script sheets throughout the show... incredibly distracting.

Appalling! Look, if the understudy for Falstaff had to go on in the Civic Theater of Oshkosh production, I might be a little sympathetic, but the expectations for Chicago Shakespeare are a bit higher!
