The weight of this sad time we must obey,
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
The oldest hath borne most. We that are young
Shall never see so much, nor live so long.
–Shakespeare, THE TRAGEDY OF KING LEAR
Two great photos, one great quote. Nice, Norb. Don
Ah, a bookstore by any other name would smell as sweet
heaven is surely a bookstore
This came at an auspicious time. My husband died last Wednesday; the moment was not expected. I had always liked this quote but forgotten it; it is what I truly believe. I thank whatever part of your expansive spirit moved you to do this.
King Lear is a Shakespeare jewel and an old favorite. The verse that has stayed with me,like the one you quoted, packs a punch.
What a tremendous portrait. Ow and wow!
And who would think Shakespeare and Company would look almost as messy as my office?!
