"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."

William Shakespeare, Macbeth (via tocamelot)

But, if it weren’t for my children, I’d have thrown myself from the highest window in the Red Keep. They’re the reason I’m alive. Even Joffrey.

Eavesdropping could be considered a very bad thing…unless you’re looking to fall in love, like in Much Ado About Nothing.

Kenneth Branagh & Emma Thompson knocked it out of the park in this one.

Not marble, nor the gilded monuments 
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents 
Than unswept stone, besmear’d with sluttish time. 
When wasteful war shall statues overturn, 
And broils root out the work of masonry, 
Nor Mars his sword nor war’s quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory. 
'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity 
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
So, till the judgment that yourself arise, 
You live in this, and dwell in lovers’ eyes.

Sonnet 55, William Shakespeare
