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.

Defining Shakespeare's Quill
What is the purpose of this site?

Shakespeare's Quill doesn't, technically, have much of a defined purpose. It is a place to air my mind and a respite from reality: a method by which I may define myself. An exercise in ego, perhaps?

What's in a name?

I first thought of the name Shakespeare's Quill several years ago during a Message Board discussion. The topic asked the question "If you could be any item, past of present, what it would it be?" My instant response was that I'd like to have been a Quill used by William Shakespeare. The name has stayed in my mind and when I was searching for a domain it seemed the perfect title. So, what would you have been?
