Guess a Quote (10.27.14)

Guess a Quote [Hamlet]

Last week’s quote came from Hamlet, by William Shakespeare. For some reason, I’ve never been able to get into Shakespeare. I think it’s the poetry. Don’t get me wrong, poetry is great. At least the kind that actually rhymes is. But stories told in verse don’t seem to click with my brain.  What about you? Do you love stories told through poetry, hate them, or waver somewhere in between? Have  you read any stories besides works by Shakespeare that rely on poetry to communicate the entire story?

Anyway, many of you enjoy Shakespeare, which makes Hamlet a great work to pull a quote from. Jennifer Sauer, Mark, Elisabeth Sullivan, Emily Ruth, starshining4ever, and Aubrey Lidden all got it right. Good job everyone!

Here’s the quote for this week. Amanda was kind enough to share it with us.

There are two kinds of travel. The usual way is to take the fastest imaginable conveyance along the shortest road. The other way is not to care particularly where you are going or how long it will take you, or whether you will get there or not.

Happy Guessing!

  3. I generally dislike stories told in verse. As for other ones besides Shakespeare, Homer comes to mind…
