ADVICE SCENE

       

"You are a fishmonger!"

"Though this be madness, yet there is method in it!"

Today's Quote of the Day:

from Macbeth, Act 5, scene 5:

MACBETH

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
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.

 

HAMLET MEETS THE GHOST!

"Yes, by St. Patrick, it is an honest ghost"

   --Hamlet, Act 1.5

Jude Law as Hamlet meets the ghost!

Ethan Hawke as Hamlet

Today's Quotes of the Day:

New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.     --John Locke, philosopher (1632-1704)

and

It makes sense to make a map of places where you can get eaten by bears, or where there's a bottomless pit, but when you get into making maps of your mind, you're basically wasting your time.

Today's Allusion:

"The Emperor's New Clothes"

Today's Words of the Day:

Today's Quote of the Day:

"I wanted you to see what courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a  man with a gun in his hand.  It's when you know you're licked before you  begin but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what."

from To Kill A Mockingbird  by Harper Lee

WEDNESDAY, day 26

"the play's the thing . . .

. . . wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king!"

Today's Quote of the Day:

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. 

~Charles Dickens

Today's Allusion:

left-handed "compliment"

Today's Words of the Day:

abjure

scintillating

rancor

debonair

HAMLET WORD OF THE DAY:

Pyrrhic victory

(PIR-ik VIK-tuh-ree) See  Hamlet Act 2 pp. 35-53

noun A victory won at too great a cost. [After Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, who suffered staggering losses in defeating the Romans.]

"With lawsuits multiplying like crazy and mutual accusations of stealing the election spiralling out of control, almost any result now looks as if it will be a Pyrrhic victory."United States: Whatever Will They Think of Next?; The Economist (London, UK); Nov 25, 2000.

"One more such victory and we are lost," exclaimed Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, as he described his costly success in the battle of Asculum in Apulia. With those words he gave us a metaphor to refer to a victory so costly that it's barely better than defeat. If we talk to those who lost their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives and other loved ones in war, every victory is a Pyrrhic victory. A war is perhaps the only occasion when killing a person is not just accepted but rewarded. If only we could learn to fight wars only with words.

For a really inspirational story (reminds me of the "Lay of the Last

Survivor"), watch these youtube videos about the story of Prof. Randy

Pausch from Carnegie-Mellon giving his last lecture (a tradition for

retiring professors at C-M to do before leaving to leave their life

lessons with their students) at age 47 when he found out he had cancer

and only had a few months to live. Incredible:
