I love this quote so much

10

Once the working day began, the King’s time was not his own, and George’s diligent attention to business meant that hours left unoccupied to spend with Charlotte were limited. But when free to choose he demonstrated unequivocally that what he really wanted was to be left alone with his wife. His fine home, renovated at huge expense, was contented domestic retirement. There seems little doubt that the King’s feelings for the woman at the centre of his meticulously created world were deep and genuine. When George fell ill in 1762, it was suggested that he leave London to improve his health. He told Bute bluntly this was impossible unless Charlotte accompanied him: ‘Nothing in this world could make me go without her.’ His love for his wife was as strong a feeling as any he had ever experienced. ‘I know,’ he confided in Bute, ‘that the loss of her I have now would break my heart.’

Everlasting

“Everlasting”

I’ve tried to count the ways
Of why I love her on a flower
In the summer haze
Losing petals every hour
There is just so much to say
A dandelion does not suffice
To wish away these days
Until we are united under lights
And in my summer garden
And the beauty that it grows
If I beg your pardon
I must cultivate a rose
A symbol of my love
That my heart just cant contain
Just like the turtle doves
Or rainbows after rain
All these pretty sights
Remind myself of her
Just like the evening sky
Or a cat that purrs
As gentle as the breeze
That blows past my face
If I could I’d freeze
All of time and space
So we can live this time
Forever in our hearts
And in our minds we’d find
A fire from a spark
The only thing that can match
Her beauty of all styles
Are the times I catch
Her with her smile
The statues in the storms
Standing straight and tall
Love can take all forms
Surviving every fall
And through the rocky moments
Are the many surprises
Crushing my opponents
Of the many shapes and sizes
But for now I must conclude
This poem and these lines
For I have set the mood
For a perfect, loving rhyme

reading this passage in much ado I was reminded of this quote I posted a while back:  

Originally, it is almost certain that these textual characters took shape from the physiques of the actors designated to perform these roles. Rosalind is not tall because the text says so, the text says so because Rosalind is tall – at least the boy playing her was. Here it is the body of the performer that left an impression in print, not the other way around.

which I love because it brings you a little closer to the original actors, you can also recognize the same actor in oliver’s description of celia as darker and smaller than rosalind

Zodiac signs as Shakespeare quotes
  • Aries: Cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant never taste of death but once.
  • Taurus: Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt that the sun doth move. Doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I love.
  • Gemini: What's in a name? A rose by any name would smell as sweet.
  • Cancer: Talking isn't doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well, and yet words are not deeds.
  • Leo: But if it be a sin to covet honour, I am the most offending soul alive.
  • Virgo: The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.
  • Libra: Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
  • Scorpio: These violent delights have violent ends, and in their triumph die- like fire and powder- which, as they kiss, consume.
  • Sagittarius: Give me my robe, put on my crown, I have immortal longings in me.
  • Capricorn: It is not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves.
  • Aquarius: The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact.
  • Pisces: I love you with so much of my heart, that none is left to protest.
We live in a chaotic world where it’s difficult to understand the rules. Because why are some people poor and other people rich? Why do some people have to be refugees, while others are safe? Why are some people spit on on the street? And why is it that sometimes, even though you try to do something good, it’s still met with hate? It’s not weird that people give up. That they stop believing in the good. But thank you so much for not giving up, Sana. Because even though it sometimes feels like it, no one’s ever alone. Each and every one of us is a part of the big chaos. And what you do today, has an effect tomorrow. It can be hard to say, exactly what kind of effect. And you usually can’t see how everything fits together. But the effects of your actions, are always there, somewhere in the chaos. In a hundred years, we may have machines that can predict the effect of every action, but until then, we can trust this:
Fear spreads. But..
But fortunately, love does too.

  • “Your whole bio better be about how much you love and respect women or else I can’t help you when your ass is being kicked.”
