Subject: Casting pearls in Bogalusa
Sometimes it seems as if Shakespeare is around every corner but for all
that he continually surprises. Here he is in a column by Danny Haneman
in the Bogalusa, La., Daily News
At the end of his column, headed "Free trade, dangerous chemicals and
Shakespeare," Haneman writes:
In an effort to inculcate my love of William Shakespeare's works in my
readers, I've decided to close each weekly column with one of my
favorite quotations. This may represent a complete thought or simply a
brilliant turn of phrase. You will find that many are aphorisms still in
use today. This first one might have been written to my wife.
Shakespeare quote for the week:
'She is mine own,
And I as rich in having such a jewel
As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl,
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.'
Two Gentlemen of Verona. Act ii. Sc. 4.
I would hope that English teachers at Bogalusa High School cast such
pearls to appreciative sophomores.
