rimrunner sez: (Post Shakespeare in your journal. Or don't. Your journal, your call.)
More Shakespeare floating about the net can't be a bad thing, IMuHO. This seems apropos:
"The lunatic, the lover, and the poet,
Are of imagination all compact.
One sees more devils than vast hell can hold;
That is the madman. The lover, all as frantic,
Sees Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt.
The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes, and give to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name."
-- Theseus, A Midsummer-night's Dream
