And you stood out like a ruby in a Black man's ear

So now I have confessed that he is thine,
And I my self am mortgaged to thy will,
Myself I'll forfeit, so that other mine
Thou wilt restore to be my comfort still:
But thou wilt not, nor he will not be free,
For thou art covetous, and he is kind;
He learned but surety-like to write for me,
Under that bond that him as fast doth bind.
The statute of thy beauty thou wilt take,
Thou usurer, that put'st forth all to use,
And sue a friend came debtor for my sake;
So him I lose through my unkind abuse.
Him have I lost; thou hast both him and me:
He pays the whole, and yet am I not free.

(sonnet 134)

 Whoever hath her wish, thou hast thy Will,
And Will to boot, and Will in over-plus;
More than enough am I that vexed thee still,
To thy sweet will making addition thus.
Wilt thou, whose will is large and spacious,
Not once vouchsafe to hide my will in thine?
Shall will in others seem right gracious,
And in my will no fair acceptance shine?
The sea, all water, yet receives rain still,
And in abundance addeth to his store;
So thou, being rich in Will, add to thy Will
One will of mine, to make thy large will more.
Let no unkind, no fair beseechers kill;
Think all but one, and me in that one Will.

(sonnet 135)

Happy 442nd !Birthday, Master Shakespeare.

Love the icon! Wonderful.

And happy birthday (observed) to Will as well.

That is the most amazing icon, it really is!
*Icon love*
See above...

Gratuitous Icon Query

So is the icon supposed also to demonstrate that Bill the Bard really was a Klingon ("Shakespeare in the Original Klingon" and all)? There appear to be some, er, forehead issues.
No one like him in the wide world.

It's little wonder people can't believe that an unknown man from a small English hamlet could change the literary world forever.

And an uneducated riverboat pilot could never write a novel like Huckleberry Finn? *g*

People are dumb.
I see you've acquired the Philadelphia Shakespeare Festival poster!
Ooh, is that the source? Because I covet my neighbor's icon! It is indeed a most iconic icon.
