Shakespeare meme

When you see this on your f'list, quote something from Shakespeare.

I am pretty sure I can still rattle off the entire "To be or not to be" soliloquy from memory, but I don't feel like sitting here and typing the whole thing.

"There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy"

"Dost know this waterfly?" (Hamlet) (Shakespeare loved his gay jokes - I'd use the "It's all Greek to me" bit from Julius Caesar, but I can't recall the exact line.)

Considering I said it when we did it....
CASCA

Ay, he spoke Greek.

CASSIUS

To what effect?

CASCA

Nay, an I tell you that, Ill ne'er look you i' the
face again: but those that understood him smiled at
one another and shook their heads; but, for mine own
part, it was Greek to me.

Saw that Sheridan was listed as one of your schools, feel free to check out my community that I own and maintain, sheridancollege.

If you know anyone else who goes to Sheridan that has LJ, pass it along!!

THESEUS:

Come my Hippolyta, our nuptial hour draws on apace.
Four happy days bring in another moon.
But oh methinks, how slow the old moon wanes.
She lingers my desires, like to a step-dame or a dowager,
Long withering out a young man's revenues.

HIPPOLYTA

Four days will quickly steep themselves in night.
Four nights will quickly dream away the time.
And then the moon, like to a silver bow
New bent in heaven, shall behold the night of our solemnities.

I'd better stop now, although I have a mad urge to keep going. Midsummer's Night Dream. On a good day, I can quote the whole first scene. The second scene I fall down on, and I know good bits of the third. I was trying to memorize the hwole play, once upon a time.

My favourite has always been Midsummer Night's Dream. I saw it with Calm Feore as Oberon, Sheila McCarthy as Helena, and Puck sat on my lap. It was sorta cool.

"My Oberon! What visions have I seen!
Methought I was enamored of an ass."

and
"I am sent with broom before,
To sweep the dust behind the door."

"Aye, in the catelogue ye go for men, as hounds, greyhounds, mongrels, spaniels, curs, sloughs, water-rugs and demi-wolves are clept all in the name of dogs."
Macbeth, to the murderers he hires to kill Banquo + family.
