That's Not Shakespeare

If you’ve ever tracked the “Shakespeare” tag, you’ve probably seen a number of silly-sounding, inauthentic quotes all attributed to the Bard. Thankfully, there is a blog to set the record straight: thatsnotshakespeare.tumblr.com

Instead of pulling your hair out because of this or this or a rephrase from a sparknotes page, follow this blog and, for the love of Shakespeare, check before you quote. 

anonymous asked:

Do you have a citation (publication, date, page number) for this verse? "The earth has its music for those who will listen,Its bright variations forever abound;With all the wonders that God has bequeathed us,There is nothing that thrills like the magic of sound.” I don't think it is George Santayana. Observe its absence from _The Complete Poems of George Santayana_ edited by William Holzberger (Bucknell U. P., 1979).

well, no, off the top of my head i don’t, and it certainly seems you know more about george santayana’s works than me, but i can tell you for certain that it isn’t shakespeare.
