Favorite Line Fridays

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in the stars, but in our ourselves.” and, of course, “Beware the Ides of March.” William Shakespeare, JULIUS CAESAR.

It’s possible that this play spawned one of the earliest and most famous of superstitions and “bad luck” days. I don’t personally consider it on par with Friday the 13th, but I know some do. Either way, it’s a true classic. Not only does the 15th of March remind me of William Shakespeare (love him!) and my high school English teacher (the one who looked exactly like Elvis Costello), it brings to mind murder and betrayal, common themes in mystery writing and reading. So many of his works featured death and murder and even characters you loved to hate. How modern of him! For me, his works have stood the test of time, whether they are a literal interpretation or a looser telling. Truly classic!
