Shakespeare quote meme

Gacked from koinegeek:

If you see this on your friends list, add a Shakespeare quote of your own!

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more;
Men were deceivers ever;
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never;
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny;
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into, Hey nonny, nonny.

Sing no more ditties, sing no mo',
Or dumps so dull and heavy;
The fraud of men was ever so,
Since summer first was leavy.
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into, Hey, nonny, nonny.

There are several lovely musical settings of this out there, but my favorite is the one in the 1993 film of Much Ado About Nothing.


Gacked from springdove:

When you see this, you must post a poem you like in your journal. And now you've seen it! HA!

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Robert Frost is not my favorite poet, but I just love the rhyme scheme of this poem. It always gives me little shivers.

I'm not bothering with LJ cuts. If you really don't want to do these, be a grown up and realize that you will not be struck down by the LJ meme gods if you don't. :P

Also, I would just like to announce that I have a new fannish obsession lately: Inuyasha. Anyone else out there watching this one on Adult Swim (or by other means--there's about a zillion episodes that can be found either dubbed or subtitled or both on the internet)?

  • Ha! I have stumped you.

    No one has said the right answer to my last riddle yet. Hint: It's not a person. Joie

  • New riddle!

    Another Who Am I? riddle: this can be any person, place, or thing in Harry Potter's world. I’ve listened to misers, and aided kaisers. My favorite…

  • Lost riddle

    Here's another HP "Who Am I?" riddle that I don't think I've posted before: I can give back what you give me, But say the word and I’ll give more.…
