They that have power to hurt, and will do none,
That do not do the thing they most do show,
Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow;
They rightly do inherit heaven's graces,
And husband nature's riches from expense;
They are the lords and owners of their faces,
Others, but stewards of their excellence.
The summer's flower is to the summer sweet,
Though to itself, it only live and die,
But if that flower with base infection meet,
The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
Lilies that fester, smell far worse than weeds.

Jolyon Forsyte:No, you're right Irene. It's more than satire. These young people are tired of us, our Gods and our ideals. Smash down our idols; off with our heads. Let's get back to nothing.
Hello, World Wide Wonderland! Welcome to the personal site of monalipschitz. A collection of the bizarre, the insightful (hopefully) and other random things which are either of interest or mean something to me. In other words: an exercise in narcissism.
Persiflage - Also known as Persiflage on Entertainment, a place for me to air my numerous opinions on many things, but mainly focused on entertainment: television, films, books, poetry and theatre.
About - This section contains all that essential, and non-essential, information that may or may not interest you depending on how nosey you are. Everything appertaining to technical details of Shakespeare's Quill and the life and times of monalipschitz can be found here.
Sundry - Another name for my visitor section. This is where I have collected together various artistic endeavours, generally in the form of iconage, as well as other such life-enhancing things as trivia, quotes and hosting.
Exit - Does exactly what it says on the tin. A page by which you may like to leave Shakespeare's Quill and not just via my online chums pages, but message boards, celebrities and those all-important fanlistings. Oh and you can also contact me there too, if you are that way inclined.
(25th February 2007)
Shakespeare's Quill has finally been launched. After nearly 6 months of procrastinating, work and frustrated hair-pulling the site is, at last, in a launch-able state. There's still more I hope to add, but I hope there's something of vague time-killing interest to some.
