“We drift down time, clutching at straws. But what good's a brick to a drowning man?”

I can make a straw hat by now... Undecided

I LOVE that play (and the movie. I also had a crush on Iain Glen Blush And when I say crush, I just mean I thought (think) he is a very handsome man), dance. I can quote quite a few lines by heart. The one about death was... Still remember what an effect it had on me, wanted to talk about it in class at uni and just...

“Whatever became of the moment when one first knew about death? There must have been one, a moment, in childhood, when it first occurred to you that you don't go on forever. It must have been shattering, stamped into one's memory. And yet I can't remember it. It never occurred to me at all. We must be born with an intuition of mortality. Before we know the word for it, before we know that there are words,out we come, bloodied and squalling...with the knowledge that for all the points of the compass, there's only one direction and time is its only measure.”

And it's just such a gem, linguistically speaking. Just brilliant.

Laugh out load

Not all that surprising that some people might believe that, really.

That's what you want us to think. Consider
