Shakepeare's birthday

Yes, today is the day. Or, at least, the day it is traditionally observed.

Here are some of the things the Bard wrote that I really wish all politicians would ponder:

God hath given you one face, and you make yourselves another.

He that loves to be flattered is worthy o' the flatterer.

Hell is empty and all the devils are here.

How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?

Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.

Ah, there are so many more! I could so wish that our nation's leaders could be counted on to have a liberal arts education!
