Shakespeare: Sometimes, I feel like dying.
Shakespeare: But then, I remember I won't see you again if I died.
Arthur: Sometimes, I feel like dying.
Theo: Good for you.
"Death is terrible, but still terrible the feel that you might live forever and never die."
Comte: Are you ever going to listen to me?
Shakespeare: Whenever you say something I agree with.
Pošetilé je žít, když je nám život mukou.
This is a coin from 40BC. On the left is Brutus. What I’m going to point out is of the right. The cap in the middle of the right coin is the cap that are given to freed slaves in Rome. And the two daggers are supposed to symbolize fate and also the weapons used to kill Caesar, meaning that through bloodshed they were able to be freed slaves of the fate of being ruled by Julius Caesar.
This appeals with Golden Wind’s theme that everyone is a slave of fate. Mista shows how fate could be alternated, however he was only able to elongate the life of Bucciarati, with the sacrifice of two other members.
And also note that on the coin it states Eids of March; March 15th was the day when Caesar was assassinated. Golden Wind takes place from March-April.

Spectacularly bitchy intro to 'Keats and Shakespeare' by John Middleton Murray, 1925.
"Christopher Marlowe, who had to appear before the Privy Council, seemed to make a hobby out of being arrested"

Guys. Guys. I need a sit com or a comic or something about the Early Modern Dramatists sitting around arguing over whose turn it is to bail Kit out of prison this time.
...I mean also pretty much every non-Shakespeare playwright of their circle seems to have been arrested at some point or other so like. He probably goes (again) and picks up Ben Johnson at the same time.
akira kurosawa sure can do an absolutely crushing ending, and the ending of his film noir hamlet adaptation the bad sleep well (1960) was no exception. my GOD. a horatio who just lost his hamlet really can be the sexiest and scariest thing in the world. hamlet’s death is tragic, but it’s horatio left behind, horatio who knows everything and can do nothing but scream to a dead heaven, that really chills your blood
Mcytblr (dsmpblr) might like to know that “canon” (as in one n) is the word for when something genuinely happened in the story (is part of the canon). “Cannon” (as in two n’s) is the weapon. Please guys. They are spelt differently and mean two different things. Please.

My middle school English teacher forcing me to be Cassius every day when we read The Tragedy of Julius Caesar even when other parts were rotated is the most clearly anyone has ever seen me and it’s been downhill ever since.
poem: finding happiness
everything’s like a journey,
multiple paths that lead to that
maybe we won’t always be happy,
maybe we’ll be at that limit,
the darkness no light can reach—
but one day we’ll find our flashlight
and find our way out,
one day we’ll fall in love
with the sound of our heartbeat—
we’ll find the reason we’re in love
with every breath we take
and every step we run—
and those days may be be dark,
and those nights feel lost,
but honey i will always tell you,
there’s more to life than what you see—
you have so much left to live,
i know you don’t quite see it,
but you have so many questions to answer
and jokes to laugh at—
you have so many friends to find,
chaotic silences to break,
so many adventures left to discover.
Death, that hath sucked the honey of they breath,
Hath no power yet upon they beauty.
— William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet: Act 5, Scene iii
