They that have power to hurt, and will do none,
That do not do the thing they most do show,
Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;
They rightly do inherit heaven's graces,
And husband nature's riches from expense;
They are the lords and owners of their faces,
Others, but stewards of their excellence.
The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
Though to itself, it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester, smell far worse than weeds.

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?
