Isn't it obvious? A good deed shines in a weary world. This line actually gives some good imagery. By using the word "weary", Shakespeare is painting a picture of a grey and bleak world. A good deed shines among it, giving it a distinction among that bleak and dreary world. It hints that a good deed is valuable and rare in a world that is weary.

hi, i am no poet...so only can try .i think that phrase must be written on kindness and considerration that are so rae in the second life,nastiness so often abounds,,that when it occurs,you have to really give a shout out.and this act of kindness is all the more highlighted by the act of malice which it sought to undo...

From the sentence itself, I guess the meaning is that even if you live in a bad world, you still should do the right or good things for the people in you country. In our country, i think the criteria of our behaviours should not be changed while the circumstance of the community changed or something that is wrong happend.We should hold up the right principle!

well the line itself is incomplete it means a good deed is shown in a weary world ofcourse weary meaning tired or dissatisfied world it but if i am to analyze it it should say that in this world that is tired of hardships, lies deceit a good deed will shine through
