List you well for so it be true as in no other garden the blossum of knowledge is thine alone to nuture or to prune. 

T'were said in works crafted of the Masters own twas Caliban of the "The Tempest" who railed “You taught me 
language / And my profit on't is / I know how to curse / The red plague 
rid you /For learning me your language.” Though you be no mincer of words nor bare you any need for such coarse work as curses. It is so plausive, from the very breath used in reading of these words put down byest your mark'ed hand fair 
Mistress, nere would any man worth his wit trust that thy hath not been palmy with Master Shakespeare's tongue and tended it well as sweet honey scented roses made from thine own pretence.

 Nary a soul of virtue could protest your that whilest in your puttering-on hast thou not like the sun shown 
brightly upon your own self and so illuminant to it must you be true.

Most kindly

Subject: [Northkeep] Talk Like Shakespeare Day

The feast of St. George, also celebrated by common fiat as the natal day of William Shakespeare, and without doubt the sad self-same mark upon the calendar when breathed he his last words, shall be knowne (by command of the Lord Mayor of the city of the Illini-on-the-Lake, knowne also as "Chicago") as 

"Talk Like Shakespeare Day."

Verily was Avon's son the first among: "The best actors in the world, either for tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical-historical-pastoral; scene individable, or poem unlimited." (Hamlet, Act II, Scene 2)

Though three centuries, four-score and fourteen years have run since his pen fell dry, he has still volumes to say to us.  Therefore: clap-to, friends, and loose thy tongues with speech such as this age is much short of!


Honest, Your Honor, I was just polishing my English degree when it went off . . .
