Maybe my favourite of all of Shakespeare’s writings....

 

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.

Please, let's keep this on the positive, and not the facetious and mocking... Based on reports and comments, I came here for a visit.

 

Thanks all!

The thread does belong in community chatter, but apart from that, it's harmless and decently fun.

My hope and plan for this site was to post thoughtful, meaningful and imaginative ideas and quotes.

Not just a cheap joke site.

Please limit posts to those that follow the original intent.

If anyone needs to post cheap jokes, maybe start your own thread or stick to Facebook.
