Shakespeare Sonnet-a-Day


Shakespeare Sonnet-a-Day


Sonnet #72

Posted:

LXXII.

O, lest the world should task you to recite
What merit lived in me, that you should love
After my death, dear love, forget me quite,
For you in me can nothing worthy prove;
Unless you would devise some virtuous lie,
To do more for me than mine own desert,
And hang more praise upon deceased I
Than niggard truth would willingly impart:
O, lest your true love may seem false in this,
That you for love speak well of me untrue,
My name be buried where my body is,
And live no more to shame nor me nor you.
For I am shamed by that which I bring forth,
And so should you, to love things nothing worth.

SQ AND THE 99¢ Fix #Gershwin #supportthearts


We're going to share pertinent messages from SQ to an appropriate TQ blog when indicated. She's a famous Culebran, for one thing.

On Aug 29, 2013 at 6:04 PM SQ shared...


  Ah the wonders of the modern world, for ninety nine cents you can hear George Gershwin playing Rhapsody In Blue.  Thee guy himself playing the piano in your house and all you have to do is sign your password, pay up the ninety nine cents on your phone bill. They make it so easy you forget you have a pen and paper to total up all these ninety nine cent deals. On my budget my music consumption for the month has ended but I got George.

Aphorism #175 A Solid Man.

Posted:

One who is finds no satisfaction in those that are not. 'Tis a pitiable eminence that is not well founded. Not all are men that seem to be so. Some are sources of deceit; impregnated by chimeras they give birth to impositions. Others are like them so far that they take more pleasure in a lie, because it promises much, than in the truth, because it performs little. But in the end these caprices come to a bad end, for they have no solid foundation. Only Truth can give true reputation: only reality can be of real profit. One deceit needs many others, and so the whole house is built in the air and must soon come to the ground. Unfounded things never reach old age. They promise too much to be much trusted, just as that cannot be true which proves too much.
