Celebrating Shakespeare‏

“I would challenge you to a battle of wits,
but I see you are unarmed.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Old Willy certainly had an eloquent way in which to insult people of lower intelligence or those whose stupidity and ineptitude were their most admirable qualities. Now, four hundred years after his death, I wonder what he would think of this ‘modern’ world that we are slowly destroying?

Perhaps this…

“Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind,
As man’s ingratitude.”
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)



“We are more naked and needy before words

that we write than perhaps anywhere else.

We fear this, so we avoid it.

But reality is where God shows up.

Reality may be painful,

but if we want to meet God

we have to go there.”

Dan B. Allender
