One of the drawbacks of WordPress only providing a limited service at the moment is that I didn’t receive notification that Emily, of Emily’s Thoughts has nominated me to take part in this challenge. The title is self explanatory, so here goes with one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite Shakespeare plays, Antony and Cleopatra
Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
Of the ranged empire fall. Here is my space.
Kingdoms are clay; our dungy earth alike
Feeds beast as man; the nobleness of life
Is to do thus; when such a mutual pair
And such a twain can do’t. (1.1.34)
Yes, I know it’s Paolo e Francesca (by Anselm Feuerbach) but I do like this painting.
Almost forgot to name a victim. Jacqueline Nash, I’m asking you to give us your three favourite quotes.
