RE: "The worst is death, and death will have his day..."
To paraphrase the great Muddy Waters, you can’t come back to what you ain’t never left, my dear Charles. You know me – I didn’t *leave*, look-at-me-leave-and-try-to-talk-me-out-of-it thread and all, I just post when and if the mood (and the muse) strike me…

Also, apparently Shakespeare, too, was against circumcision. Wise man, he was Yes

This was the most unkindest cut of all.
For when the noble Caesar saw him stab,
Ingratitude, more strong than traitors’ arms,
Quite vanquished him.

Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.

If you prick us, do we not bleed?

I’ll not budge an inch.

Villain, what hast thou done?
That which thou canst not undo.

Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin.
O horrible, O horrible, most horrible!

Happy in that we are not overhappy; on Fortune’s cap we are not the very button.

‘Sblood, do you think I am easier to be played on than a pipe? Call me what instrument you will, though you can fret me, you cannot play upon me.

Let me be cruel, not unnatural;
I will speak daggers to her, but use none.

What if this cursed hand
Were thicker than itself with brother’s blood, —
Is there not rain enough in the sweet heavens
To wash it white as snow?

Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck this flower, safety.

I saw young Harry, with his beaver on,
His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly arm’d

Honour pricks me on. Yea, but
how if honour prick me off when I come
on? How then? Can honour set to a leg?
No. Or an arm? No. Or take away the grief of a wound?
No. Honour hath no skill in surgery, then?
No.

PS. Oh, and I obviously meant "contrarian" in the last paragraph of my previous post Rolleyes

Ah, he just wanted a reason to smile and nod at you while not looking like a creepy old man. *as I smile and nod.* Heart

Hmmm, posted a couple of times in March and before that not at all since last year. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Well, at least he didn’t serve me with a terse and deadly coffee, Johnny, so I’m not complaining Drinking Beverage

I guess it took me a year to come up with something to say, Chas… and I didn’t technically come up with it myself either Weeping

Or, conversely, something got small… Angel

The worst is not death, it's boredom; and it's with us every day.

You know this crowd, they love their outliers. Hug

If I was going to be here as I once was, 90% of my postings would be "Tomasia, suck my hog." They can just C&P if they really miss me. Laugh out load

Hamlet makes me laugh. The giant farce is hysterical.

You're ok kid. Thumbsup Anyone who quotes Shakespeare is alright in my book. My husband is playing Prospero this summer in The Tempest. That reminds me, I need to change up my Shakespeare insult just below. It's been there for over a year. v v v

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Shakespeare makes me laugh when I should cry and vice versa.

RE: "The worst is death, and death will have his day..."
Haha, Johnny! I take it the place hasn’t been suffering from a shortage of trolls and annoying god botherers, then? (Actually, after a quick browse I’ll have to agree with you on that particular one. He might not have the unabashed hatefulness and downright insanity of an Egor (then again, not many do), but appears much more slimy than Egor ever was. And I think I prefer honest hatefulness to slime and fake niceness.)

I guess I *am* okay, dancefortwo, you know, such stuff as dreams are made of… the dreams one wakes up in a cold sweat from Undecided Hope your husband breaks a leg (so to speak ;-))

Rosencrantz and Guldenstern are Neighbours... much better than them being dead!

“GUIL: I think I have it. A man talking sense to himself is no madder than a man talking nonsense not to himself.
ROS: Or just as mad.
GUIL: Or just as mad.
ROS: And he does both.
GUIL: So there you are.
ROS: Stark raving sane.”


And my favourite:

“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 for ever. It must have been shattering - stamped into one's memory. And yet I can't remember it. It never occurred to me at all. What does one make of that? We must be born with an intuition of mortality. Before we know the words for it, before we know that there are words, out we come, bloodied and squalling with the knowledge that for all the compasses in the world, there's only one direction, and time is its only measure.”
