A Thanksgiving Thought From Shakespeare

From Much Ado About Nothing (which is playing now at the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, Virginia, but closes on Friday, so hurry!) I give you this bit of dialog that sums up my holiday plans:


A lord to a lord, a man to a man; stuffed with all
honourable virtues.


It is so, indeed; he is no less than a stuffed man:
but for the stuffing,--well, we are all mortal.

Beatrice sounds just like my lovely wife!
