I'm talking about Shakespeare and he has evoked some vibrancy in me a reckon. I was against him as a source of literary philosophy but in my research for this episode the man has swayed me from beyond the grave. What a guy! Have a listen and see what the bugger I'm going on about.
The qoutes included in this episode are:
To be or not to be. That is the question.
(Hamlet act 3 scene 1)
This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
-Hamlet, Act I, Scene III
‘What’s in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.’
(Romeo and Juliet, Act 2, Scene 2)
My tongue will tell the anger of my heart, or else my heart concealing it will break.
― William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew.
