    1. There so many wonderful Shakespearean quotes. “this above all to thine own self be true” “To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer” “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” to mention a few. I once had all of his plays. I seemed to like the tragedies more than the comedies. Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, Timon of Athens, Merchant of Venice and Measure for Measure are among the ones I liked. That’s funny about your parents 🙂

      1. Yeah, kinda cute now that I think about my parents’ animated Shakespeare dialogue.
        The Merchant of Venice was the Shakespeare read for Literature in English my School Cert set.
        Portia probably had a ball acting in the capacity of a lawyer. 😊
