A Most Pitiful Ambition

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:12 am by Administrator

“…let those that play your clowns speak no more than is set down for them, for there be of them that will themselves laugh to set on some quantity of barren spectators to laugh too, though in the meantime some necessary question of the play be then to be considered. That’s villainous, and shows a most pitiful ambition in the fool that uses it.”
HAMLET, Act 3, Scene 2
One always seems so intellectual when one quotes Shakespeare.  But I have quoted him in front of audiences for about 38 years now and have very little intellect to speak of.
