Currently working on my play analysis for The Merchant of Venice. It’s a long list of things to include, but I have the next two weeks broken down. When did I get so organized? I still need to get supplies for the class. Scale rule, x-acto knife, and white board. Which means I’ll have to beg someone to drive me somewhere to buy these things.
"Coach Paterno wasn’t teaching football players, how to play the game. His whole goal in life was help young men transition into a contributing members of society. This idea is what defines Joe Paterno. I came to Penn State, knowing little to nothing about "Success with Honor" , now I will embrace this factor applying to everything I do."
From the same friend that said a piece of his soul was torn down.
“The quality of mercy is not strained.
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest. It becomes
The thronèd monarch better than his crown.
His scepter shows the force of temporal power,
The attribute to awe and majesty
Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings,
But mercy is above this sceptered sway.
It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings.
It is an attribute to God himself.
And earthly power doth then show likest God’s
When mercy seasons justice.”—William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
“How all the other passions fleet to air,
As doubtful thoughts, and rash-embraced despair,
And shuddering fear, and green-eyed jealousy!
O love, be moderate. Allay thy ecstasy.
In measure rein thy joy. Scant this excess.
I feel too much thy blessing. Make it less,
For fear I surfeit.”—William Shakespare, The Merchant of Venice
