Sonnet 109 by William Shakespeare (read by Sir Patrick Stewart)

O! never say that I was false of heart,
Though absence seemed my flame to qualify.
As easy might I from myself depart
As from my soul, which in thy breast doth lie:

That is my home of love; if I have ranged,
Like him that travels, I return again,
Just to the time, not with the time exchanged,
So that myself bring water for my stain.

Never believe, though in my nature reigned
All frailties that besiege all kinds of blood,
That it could so preposterously be stained,
To leave for nothing all thy sum of good;

  For nothing this wide universe I call,
  Save thou, my rose; in it thou art my all.

It is true that when reading Shakespeare you have to do it out loud. Believe me, everything changes, you’ll enjoy it so much more. You’ll find yourself walking around the room, feeling every word, every moment, every movement. This way you’ll make a very unique and unforgettable experience out of it.

An Open Letter to Juliet Capulet

Honey. You’re young. You have your whole life ahead of you. You don’t need to go absolutely crazy over the first stupid teenage boy who shows interest in you. This is not the peak of all excitement and joy in life.

Sweetie. Count Paris is a catch. Seriously. He’s hot, he’s rich, he’s powerful, and he’s a genuinely sweet guy who’s eager to provide for you and make you happy. IT DOES NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS. Trust me. I know you’re in your teenage rebellion phase, but your parents actually know what they’re talking about here.

This guy Romeo? He was hopelessly in love with someone else literally five seconds before he saw you. Fact of life: Teenagers boys have the romantic constancy of a mosquito. Welcome to the real world, hon. If you’d been with him more than three days, it probably wouldn’t have been long before he left you for his next insta-love. Plus, he’s a 16-year-old boy who has the attention span of a chimpanzee, probably still makes jokes about bodily functions, and can’t possibly be all that great in bed.

News flash, babe:


So, let’s maybe rearrange our priorities and NOT kill ourselves because of some dumb boy, mkay? You deserve better, sweetie.

An under appreciated line from A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

“Get you gone you dwarf, you minimums. A hindering of knotgrass made, you bead, you acorn!”

I apologize for any errors, I am going from memory from a production I was in years ago.
