Jesus icon

it was going to be a short entry

"My words fly up, my thoughts remain below:
Words without thoughts never to heaven go."
~Shakespeare, Hamlet
That made me think. Is it pathetic that that phrase left the biggest impression on me of the whole production?

"Sleep is a crutch and I think my leg is broken."

"Whoever does not have the stomach for this fight, let him depart. Give him money to speed his departure since we wish not to die in that mans company. Whoever lives past today and comes home safely will rouse himself every year on this day, show his neighbor his scars, and tell embellished stories of all their great feats of battle. These stories he will teach his son and from this day until the end of the world we shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for whoever has shed his blood with me shall be my brother. And those men afraid to go will think themselves lesser men as they hear of how we fought and died together"

~Shakespeare, Henry V
