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.

Fantasy Dinner Party Guests

William Shakespeare: (Come on, with this domain name, did you think he wouldn't be there?). A moment in his presence would be divine. I'd love to listen to his tales of The Globe and Elizabethan society.
Livia Drusilla: Wife of the Roman Emperor Augustus, she has been popularised as a murderess. It would be interesting to find out if she really was a skilled poisoner, and as beautiful as was claimed.
Germaine Greer: Feminist literary critic. Outspoken and always controversial, she'd ensure the evening went with an intellectually stimulating bang.
Fred Astaire: So the evening could end with the last Waltz, impeccably danced.
