Quote of the Week (It’s Shakespeare’s birthday)

Today is William Shakespeare’s probable birthday and also his death anniversary, which I find very creepy to be honest. But, whether he was born on April 23rd or not is not what matters. What matters about Shakespeare is the fact that he introduced more than 3000 words to the English vocabulary that we now make daily use of. What matters is that he wrote 37 plays and 154 works that are known. And there are many other reasons why Shakespeare matters, I could sit here writing the entire night. So, there was no way I could select a Quote of the Week that wasn’t by The Bard. So here it goes, again from one of my favourite plays, Much Ado About Nothing (if you want to see the previous quote from this play click here).

 

Beatrice: I wonder that you will still be talking, Signior Benedick: nobody marks you. Much Ado About Nothing - William Shakespeare

Beatrice: I wonder that you will still be talking, Signior Benedick: nobody marks you.

Quote of the Week (and a bit of talk)

Hello internet! Have you been tricked by too many people today? I must confess that I did believe one e-mail I received about a company closing down, but that was the only one. And no, I did not make any April Fool’s Day joke (and this isn’t a joke, I swear!).

What I wish I could tell you was only a joke is that my computer died, like I told you on my last post. I have bought a new computer since there was really no other option for me, but it has not been delivered yet. In the meantime I’ll use an old one that is barely working so I’m not sure I’ll be able to post during the whole week. If I disappear you know that’s because I couldn’t manage with this computer.

And finally, let’s go for the quote of the week! This one is from one of my favourite Shakespeare plays, Much Ado About Nothing.

Loved of all ladies

Benedick: […] but it is certain I am loved of all ladies, only you excepted…
Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare
