The wise fools of shakespeare

To be, or not to be, that is the question: Would you create me new? Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently; for in the very torrent, tempest, and, as I may say, whirlwind of your passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.

Shakespearean fool

Words to the heat of deeds too cold breath gives. Nay, to be perjured, which is worst of all; And among three to love the worst of all, A whitely wanton with a velvet brow, With two pitch-balls stuck in her face for eyes; Ay, and by heaven, one that will do the deed Though Argus were her eunuch and her guard.

There is a ring of sincerity in Audrey's rejoinder; a note that argues well for harmony, and a longer voyage on the sea of matrimony than Jaques allots them. This grave charm Whose eye becked forth my wars and called them home, Whose bosom was my crownet, my chief end, Like a right gipsy hath at fast and loose, Beguiled me to the very heart of loss.

With what a delightful assumption of patronage, Touchstone questions the simple William, encourages, emboldens, then confuses, and finally drives the poor fellow from the field with the most terrible threats of disaster and death.

Why brand they us With base? I care not for my spirits, if my legs were not weary. It is not politic in the commonwealth of nature to preserve virginity. Touchstone is not a buffoon, he does not play practical jests nor indulge in such pranks as did that "mad rogue" Yorick.

But to return to that portion of this interesting interview the poet has given us. Soft you now, The fair Ophelia! It must also be remembered that Shakespeare worked from more than one point of view; he possessed the creative faculty of the author, the ideality of the poet, the constructive ability of the dramatist, as well as the actor's instinct of delineation.

Shakespeare adopted methods of his own, which were at variance with conventionality; he discarded the scientific rules of construction, followed the natural instincts of his own mind, and established a new standard of dramatic writing. Thus conscience does make cowards of us all: Thou, Nature, art my goddess; to thy law My services are bound.

Thou sure and firm-set earth, Hear not my steps, which way they walk, for fear Thy very stones prate of my where-about, And take the present horror from the time, Which now suits with it.

First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, Strong both against the deed; then, as his host, Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself.

Every action of the fool, and every other line that the author has given him, expresses sincere regard and indicates honorable intentions. Over thy wounds now do I prophesy Which like dumb mouths do ope their ruby lips To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue A curse shall light upon the limbs of men: Virginity breeds mites, much like a cheese; consumes itself to the very paring, and so dies with feeding his own stomach.

I have been studying how I may compare This prison where I live unto the world; And, for because the world is populous And here is not a creature but myself, I cannot do it.

A bell rings I go, and it is done: Is it a true thing? As it is a spare life, look you, it fits my humor well: It is obvious to me that the characters developed in the mind of the author as he progressed in the construction of the play, and however clear may have been his first conception of the part, he elaborated and perfected it as the possibilities presented themselves.

Fortune's fool

It's amazing how many things in life are that easy. Rich honesty dwells like a miser, sir, in a poor house, as your pearl in your foul oyster. Domestic fury and fierce civil strife Shall cumber all the parts of Italy: Compton gave; his quaint personality, his unctuous humor, his artistic instinct, added to his ripe experience, combined to present a complete embodiment of the poet's design.By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.
