I think of those days millions of years ago sans the power of SPEECH
How communications could have taken place- body language alone -each
Individual human or animal would have its own method to convey
Thoughts and ideas! Communication should have been a fun as it looks today!

Man developed his method and languages began to flow like water falls
Seven Thousand and one hundred and more languages are there figures quite tall
Including spoken and signed languages-dialects not excluded
Great world, great people, great languages, great art of communication!

ENGLISH LANGUAGE DAY is today the twenty third of April- great language day
Most widely spoken and fastest spreading world language! It is English today
More than ninety eight crores of people speak as first and second language
Full of excellent works of literature – prose and verse-all over the world!

Droeshout engraving for the First Folio

William Shakespeare-(23/4/1564-23/4/1616)

William Shakespeare the greatest playwright was baptized on 26th April 1564-probably born on 23rd April and died on the same April 23rd after 52 years in the year 1616.
Last year’s 400th death anniversary of the great bard of Avon-William Shakespeare and in commemoration of the occasion I made my post in ENVIUS THOUGHTS which I am reproducing the same hereunder for the benefit of recapitulation for those who have earlier viewed and for the first time viewers as new one :.
Four hundred years ago made his exit from this earth
Four thousand years his works will shine like the young on birth
“England’s national poet” and “Bard of Avon”-was called
Great gift of God to the literary world – well he ruled!

William Shakespeare par excellent poet, playwright
And actor- born in fifteen sixty four April- quite bright
Greatest writer in English- the world regarded him right
Monumental plays and sonnets in plenty he did write!

Thirty eight plays, sonnets hundred and fifty four-great feat
In years fifty two-comedies, tragedies-he wrote
Ever spreading fragrance, never fading-work immortal
Imagination great- characters in high pedestal!

For literary lovers great treat every read gives;
“This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell: my blessing season this in thee!”
-Lord Polonius, Hamlet Act I, Scene 3

Twelfth Night, Henry Fifth, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth
Hamlet, King Lear, Othello- indeed immortal plays
Who can forget his words of wisdom-nectar like quotes?
“All the world’s a stage,
and all the men and women merely players:
they have their exits and their entrances;
and one man in his time plays many parts…”
—As You Like It, Act II,

Man’s life is measured not by his age, sure by his deeds great
In the stage of the world, he played his part, stands quite tall- straight
Made his exit four hundred years gone since then- yet lives
Will live for years four thousand to make cheerful all lives!
(In commemoration of his 400th death anniversary today-23/4/2016)
One year has passed like a day and today is his 453rd birth day

This year making it as a Sunday story I am developing the above with some of Shakespeare’s brainy quotes and some of the quotes of the great intellectuals on this wizard.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool. William Shakespeare
The course of true love never did run smooth. William Shakespeare
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures
When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind.
If we are marked to die, we are enough to do our country loss; and if to live, the fewer men, the greater share of honor.
Go to you bosom: Knock there, and ask your heart what it doth know. William Shakespeare Biography

Here are the quotes about William Shakespeare.
The Quotes about William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare is the most widely read of all Authors and the popularity of the works of Shakespeare, in English speaking countries, is second only to the Bible. He intrigues other authors. It is, therefore, not surprising that there are many quotes and quotations about William Shakespeare by his peers.

Quotes about William Shakespeare “an up-start Crow”
His fellow actors and dramatists also had a word or two to say about him – so we have included quotes from his peers! This probably started with the infamous quote about William Shakespeare by Robert Greene who criticised the Bard in his deathbed autobiographical Groatsworth of Wit (September 3, 1592 ) The quote is “for there is an up-start Crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his Tygers hart wrapt in a Players hyde, supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blanke verse as the best of you: and being an absolute Johannes fac totum, is in his owne conceit the onely Shake-scene in a countrey.” About three months after Green’s death his editor, Henry Chettle, made a public apology to Shake-speare! Not all quotes, like the Robert Greene Groatsworth of Wit about the great Bard are complimentary.

Quotes about William Shakespeare – the Identity problem
The debates surrounding the mysteries of life and works of William Shakespear have raged on for centuries. Was he the author? Who else could have written his works? The famous author James Barrie gave us one of the most witty quotes about the identity problem
“I know not, sir, whether Bacon wrote the works of Shakespeare, but if he did not it seems to me that he missed the opportunity of his life.”

Quotes about William Shakespeare by Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)
The following quotes about William Shake-speare by Oscar Wilde have such an amusing ‘ring of truth’ that no apology is given for singling them out!
“Now we sit through Shakespeare in order to recognize the quotations.”
“Are the commentators on “Hamlet” really mad, or only pretending to be?”

Famous quotes about William Shakespeare
The following selection of famous quotes about William Shakepeare are generally taken from poets and authors. Some quotes are critical and others complimentary. The controversy surrounding the Bard continues…
The e is that he is really very good – in l the people who say he is very good.
Robert Graves Quote (1895 – 1985)
e follows it at all adventures; it is sure to lead him out of his way and sure to engulf him in the mire.
Ben Jonson Quote (1573 – 1637)

My Shakespear, rise! I will not lodge thee by Chaucer, or Spenser, or bid Beaumont lie A little further, to make thee a room.
Ben Jonson Quote (1573 – 1637)

Sweet Swan of Avon!
Ben Jonson Quote (1573 – 1637)

He was not of an age, but for all time!
Ben Jonson Quote (1573 – 1637)

I have of late had the same thought – for things which I do half at Random are afterwards confirmed by my judgment in a dozen features of Propriety. Is it too daring to fancy Shakespeare this Presider?
John Keats Quote (1795 – 1821), “Letter to B.R. Haydon, May 1817”

When I read Shakespeare I am struck with wonder
That such trivial people should muse and thunder
In such lovely language.
D. H. Lawrence Quote (1885 – 1930)

Or sweetest Shakespear, Fancy’s child,
Warble his native wood-notes wild.
John Milton Quote (1608 – 1674), “L’Allegro”

What needs my Shakespeare for his honour’d bones,
The labour of an age in piled stones,
Or that his hallow’d relics should be hid
Under a star-y-pointing pyramid?
Dear son of memory, great heir of fame,
What need’st thou such weak witness of thy name?
John Milton Quote (1608 – 1674), “Epitaph on Shakespeare”

And so sepulchered in such pomp dost lie,
That kings for such a tomb would wish to die.
John Milton Quote (1608 – 1674), “Epitaph”

And one wild Shakespeare, following Nature’s lights,
Is worth whole planets, filled with Stagyrites.
Thomas More Quote (1779 – 1852), “The Sceptic”

Shakespeare – The nearest thing in incarnation to the eye of God.
Laurence Olivier Quote (1907 – 1989)

Wonderful women! Have you ever thought how much we all, and women especially, owe to Shakespeare for his vindication of women in these fearless, high-spirited, resolute and intelligent heroines?
Dame Ellen Terry Quote (1848 – 1928)

One of the greatest geniuses that ever existed,
Shakespeare, undoubtedly wanted taste.

I am not a student of English Literature. What all I have read is only Shakespeare’s ” KING LEAR” in my Pre university course during 1957-58!

I deem it to be due to the grace of the Goddess of learning-Saraswathy- that I could do something on this Sunday story on the significant day of Shakespeare. I am sure my esteemed viewers will enjoy this Sunday feature. Thanks.

Whole world is a stage and we act our roles assigned
Philosophically a valid statement found.
Whole world have theatres in hundreds every where
Many fail to develop men’s mind any where!

Half a century ago the day was created
By International Theater Institute
Founded by UNESCO earlier- role to be played
To promote international harmony- a tribute!

Theatrical presentation to have noble
Theme and content to achieve the purpose stable
On this day, let Indian theaters too promote
And make our society truly catholic and great!

As we started the publication of YOUNG POET, as the Millennium gift to the young poets-by definition poets less than twenty five years of age, we were very particular that the journal provides a platform to the young poets only. Now that almost a decade and half has gone since the Club was founded and its official organ was published, many of those young poets of those days have gone beyond twenty five and of course new tribe of young poets have come in, we have a lot of requests that the condition regarding age must be revised and in deference to their wishes, our YOUNG POET is open to all and our team is conscious of the fact that poets of what ever age they are, all are quite young in their spirits and hearts.

We are sure the issue will be well received by the lovers of English poetry and they will encourage the poets to come out with their best of poetic talents-in content, theme and presentation.

With best wishes
