May I first say this is a wonderful community, I had such fun looking over all the wonderful posts here.

thedivinerpg is a brand new Role Play Game based off Dante's Inferno. We're opening this November 1st and we are looking for a cast of characters from any and all Shakespearian works to come join us for some creative, otherworldly fun. We already have one person writing for Iago from Othello and we would love if anyone here who might be interested would come and take a peek, see if you may like to apply.

[If this kind of post isn't allowed in this community I completely understand and will gladly take it down, just say the word if it's a problem. :) ]

9:31 am - Quote needed, please help

monkey_baskrvil
I am writing an article about herbs and spices, and I want to give it an interesting name: a quote from Shakespeare. The only thing that comes to mind is Ophelia’s “There's rosemary, that's for remembrance”. If you remember anything else, please let me know!! Thanks

"And your experience makes you sad: I had rather have
a fool to make me merry than experience to make me
sad; and to travel for it too!"

I'm very sorry that I didn't post this weekend. The whole house was sick. So I decided to post a sonnet to make up for it.


XXVII.
Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed,
The dear repose for limbs with travel tir'd;
But then begins a journey in my head
To work my mind, when body's work's expir'd:
For then my thoughts—from far where I abide—
Intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee,
And keep my drooping eyelids open wide,
Looking on darkness which the blind do see:
Save that my soul's imaginary sight
Presents thy shadow to my sightless view,
Which, like a jewel hung in ghastly night,
Makes black night beauteous and her old face new.
Lo! thus, by day my limbs, by night my mind,
For thee, and for myself no quiet find.

"Come unto these yellow sands, and then take hands;
curtsied when you have and kissed the wild waves whist,
foot it featly here and there;
and, sweet sprites, the burden bear.
Hark! Hark! Bow-wow!
The watchdogs bark.
Bow-wow-wow-wow!
I hear the strain of the strutting chanticleer cry
cock-a-diddle-dow! Cock-a-diddle-dow!"

Ariel in The Tempest Act 1 Scene 2

"Alas, that love, whose view is muffled still,
Should, without eyes, see pathways to his will!
Where shall we dine? O me! What fray was here?
Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all.
Here's much to do with hate, but more with love.
Why, then, O brawling love! O loving hate!
O any thing, of nothing first create!
O heavy lightness! serious vanity!
Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms!
Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire,
sick health!
Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.
Dost thou not laugh?"

Romeo in Romeo and Juliet Act 1 Scene 1

"That light we see is burning in my hall.
How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a naughty world."

"A good heart Kate, is the sun and the moon, or
rather the sun and not the moon; for it shines bright
and never changes, but keeps his course truly."

"Gallop apace, you fiery-footed steeds,
Towards Phoebus' lodging! Such a wagoner
As Phaeton would whip you to the west
And bring in cloudy night immediately.
Spread thy close curtain, love-performing night,
That runaway's eyes may wink, and Romeo
Leap to these arms untalked of and unseen.
Lovers can see to do their amorous rites
By their own beauties; or, if love be blind,
It best agrees with night. Come, civil night,
Thou sober-suited matron, all in black,
And learn me how to lose a winning match,
Played for a pair of stainless maidenhoods.
Hood my unmanned blood, bating in my cheeks,
With thy black mantle till strange love grow bold,
Think true love acted simple modesty.
Come, night; come, Romeo; come, thou day in night;
For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night
Whiter than new snow upon a raven's back.
Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
O, I have bought the mansion of a love,
But not possessed it. So tedious is this day
As is the night before some festival
To an impatient child that hath new robes
And may not wear them."

Juliet in Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Scene 2

I had an idea today.  What if I do one long monologue for both Saturday and Sunday?  I know I posted yesterday, so I could start that next weekend.

"Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never:
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into Hey nonny, nonny.
Sing no more ditties, sing no moe,
Of dumps so dull and heavy;
The fraud of men was ever so,
Since summer first was leafy:
Then sigh not so"
Balthasar in Much Ado About Nothing Act 2 Scene 3

"Cannot be ill, cannot be good: if ill,
Why hath it given me earnest of success,
Commencing in a truth? I am thane of Cawdor:
If good, why do I yield to that suggestion
Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair
And make my seated heart knock at my ribs,
Against the use of nature? Present fears
Are less than horrible imaginings:
My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical,
Shakes so my single state of man that function
Is smother'd in surmise, and nothing is
But what is not."
Macbeth in Macbeth Act 1 Scene 3
