An educational publisher recently asked me if they could print this scribble in a textbook, so I needed to rescan it to send them a better image. I erased the “i” from “bated breath” and also replicated it digitally, for anyone who has trouble reading my messy handwriting (myself included!) Feel free to use accordingly
Thank you to every single one of you who has reblogged/shared the post. It has almost reached 70,000 notes and it makes me happy to see that. The fact of the matter is, every time this image has been shared, the chances that somebody will learn something which they didn’t already know increases. Many people are put off by classic literature because the language is foreign to them. They can read the words, but they don’t understand them. This might discourage them from pursuing it further. So I’d like to think you haven’t simply reblogged an image on the internet. You might be responsible for opening the door of curiosity for somebody else.
As Mahatma Gandhi said: Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever :)
Love is blind: ”But love is blind, and lovers cannot see/The petty follies that themselves commit.” — Jessica, The Merchant of Venice (this phrase appears in Two Gentlemen of Verona and Henry V)
Knock knock! Who’s there?: ”Knock, knock, knock! Who’s there, i’ th’ name of Beelzebub? Here’s a farmer that hanged himself on the expectation of plenty. Come in time, have napkins enough about you, here you’ll sweat for ‘t.” — Drunk or hungover porter, Macbeth
Green-eyed monster: ”O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!/It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock/The meat it feeds on.” — Iago, Othello
The world is my oyster: ”Why then the world’s mine oyster/Which I with sword will open.” — Pistol, The Merry Wives of Windsor
Wild goose chase: ”Nay, if our wits run the wild-goose chase, I am done; for thou hast more of the wild goose in one of thy wits than, I am sure, I have in my whole five.” — Mercutio,Romeo & Juliet
In a pickle: “And Trinculo is reeling ripe: where should they find this grand liquor that hath gilded ‘em? How camest thou in this pickle?” — Alonso, The Tempest
Break the ice: ”And if you break the ice and do this feat/Achieve the elder, set the younger free/For our access, whose hap shall be to have her/Will not so graceless be to be ingrate.” — Tranio, The Taming of the Shrew
Hair stand on end: “Thy knotted and combinèd locks to part/And each particular hair to stand on end/Like quills upon the fearful porpentine.” — Ghost, Hamlet
Did you know we had Shakespeare to thank for these phrases? I didn’t!
