It's an aloe (you may know it as agave). They lined the paths at the ashram and needed to be trimmed to protect legs! Yxx

BOL... well your Medliness, the sticky stuff oozing out is what is good for sunburn and stuffs. However, the leaves are big and strong and have 'claws' on them and they do a lot of damage if your leg decides to go off path and tangle with them!!! Give and take in nature... Yxx

Doesn't Jane Eyre say something similar or did she just nick it off Billy?

heheh, well old Will predates CB by a couple of centuries so I guess he gets the credit... actually, I recall from the dim and distant past that Jane Eyre is rather famous for its many references to earlier literature - mainly the Bible, but also things like Pilgrim's Progress... she and Rochester connect through their love of writings such as those. It's been yonks since I read it, but it wouldn't surprise me if indeed she didn't also make reference to the works of the Bard... Yxx

ps - how's that throat???
