the merchant of venice: forays into shakespeare

"My little body is aweary of this great world." Portia, Act I scene ii

"If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches and poor men's cottages princes' palaces. It is a good divine that follows his own instructions: I can easier teach twenty what were good to be done than be one of the twenty to follow mine own teaching." Act I scene ii

(photo via my instagram of studying thus far. The first is from my mother's 1984 scrapbook and the last photo is of my mother's Brambly Hedge china set - all things English from here on out!)
