I'm sorry if this is the wrong place for this but I felt we needed (Well I needed ) a Shakespeare thread.
I LOVE Shakespeare. My favourite Tradegy is Richard III (I had the honour of playing Lady Anne, Richards 1st wife, at school). My favourite comedy is a toss up between A Midsummer Nights Dream and As You Like It.
I can't even begin to choose a favourite Sonnet! It changes frequently.
Some of my favourite Shakespeare quotes...
"Now is the winter of our discontent" - Richard III
"A horse! A Horse! My kingdom for a horse!" - Richard III
"All the worlds a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances and one man in his time plays many parts" - As You Like It
"Lord, what fools these mortals be" - A Midsummer Nights Dream
"Shall I compare thee to a summers day?" - Sonnet 18
"The course of true love never did run smooth" - A Midsummer Nights Dream
"This above all, to thine own self be true" - Hamlet
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" - Romeo & Juliet
"The better part of valour is discretion" - Henry IV Part I
"If music be the food of love, play on" Twelfth Night
"Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them" - Twelfth Night
That's all I can remember for now haha!
Anyone else a Shakespeare fan? I can be a ye olde fangirl when I want to be
