If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth removed from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought
I must attend time's leisure with my moan,
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either's woe.

Defining Shakespeare's Quill
What is the purpose of this site?

Shakespeare's Quill doesn't, technically, have much of a defined purpose. It is a place to air my mind and a respite from reality: a method by which I may define myself. An exercise in ego, perhaps?

What's in a name?

I first thought of the name Shakespeare's Quill several years ago during a Message Board discussion. The topic asked the question "If you could be any item, past of present, what it would it be?" My instant response was that I'd like to have been a Quill used by William Shakespeare. The name has stayed in my mind and when I was searching for a domain it seemed the perfect title. So, what would you have been?
