Shakespeare's Birthday

Celebrating William Shakespeare's birthday (April 23, 1564).

Tell me where is fancy bred,
Or in the heart, or in the head?
How begot, how nourished?
Reply, reply.
It is engendered in the eyes,
With gazing fed.

~The Merchant of Venice, act III, scene ii

Light thickens, and the crow
Makes wing to th' rooky wood.
Good things of day begin to droop and drowse,
Whiles night's black agents to their preys do rouse.

~Macbeth, act III, scene ii
