Threadbare Thursday

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
– Shakespeare

  1. The Bard, Old Billy, as the Eagles referred to him, is always good for a quote. Thanks, I needed that.


      1. Some days are for the lightness of spirit. Today not being one.

        For those readers not into the Eagles, their reference to “Old Billy” is in their song “Get Over It”. The lyric in reference to someone filing a lawsuit is this: “The more I think about it, Old Billy was right, let’s kill all of the lawyers, and kill them tonight.” From Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2 where “Dick the Butcher” says, “The first thing we do is kill all of the lawyers.” Obviously, some rock and roll singers are well read.
