LRP April Meme: Memorable Quote

“Words, words, words.” - Hamlet, William Shakespeare

That's what we read, right? Bunch of words, words and more words. Word after word, page after page, book after book. What makes a book interesting, though, is how much meaning we get from reading those book, how those words reflect and influence our minds.

Now, we are reading Shakespeare's comedies this month. Funnily enough, although tragedies sound more appropriate for quote hunting ground, Shakespeare's comedies contain a lot of them too. In fact, some of the most silly lines are the most beautiful when you take them out of their funny context.

As usual, some guiding questions:
  • What's the context of the quote?
  • What do you think it means for the character?
  • What does it mean to you?

Thus, we will hunt for these things this month. Get as many as you can, put it in the linky, and share the experience with the other.
