Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time.
When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.
'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lover's eyes.

Jolyon Foryste: Why were we born young? If only we were born older and grew younger, we'd understand how things happen and we'd drop all this damned intolerance.
Hello, World Wide Wonderland! Welcome to the personal site of monalipschitz. A collection of the bizarre, the insightful (hopefully) and other random things which are either of interest or mean something to me. In other words: an exercise in narcissism.
Persiflage - Also known as Persiflage on Entertainment, a place for me to air my numerous opinions on many things, but mainly focused on entertainment: television, films, books, poetry and theatre.
About - This section contains all that essential, and non-essential, information that may or may not interest you depending on how nosey you are. Everything appertaining to technical details of Shakespeare's Quill and the life and times of monalipschitz can be found here.
Sundry - Another name for my visitor section. This is where I have collected together various artistic endeavours, generally in the form of iconage, as well as other such life-enhancing things as trivia, quotes and hosting.
Exit - Does exactly what it says on the tin. A page by which you may like to leave Shakespeare's Quill and not just via my online chums pages, but message boards, celebrities and those all-important fanlistings. Oh and you can also contact me there too, if you are that way inclined.
(25th February 2007)
Shakespeare's Quill has finally been launched. After nearly 6 months of procrastinating, work and frustrated hair-pulling the site is, at last, in a launch-able state. There's still more I hope to add, but I hope there's something of vague time-killing interest to some.
