LET'S GET CLASSICAL!


ENOUGH! ENOUGH! ENOUGH!
LET'S GET CLASSICAL!



ENOUGH! ENOUGH! ENOUGH! Of wars, and guns, and pain, and killings, and rage, and fear, and the RAT race!

I'm home from work. I'm tired and I'm hungry, and I'm in a nasty mood, and I want to relax. I want to listen to REAL music, and read REAL poetry, and think about BEAUTIFUL things ONLY! Now, if I could find a DAMN lobster around here...

One of my favorites - William Shakespeare

It is believed that Shakespeare was 46 around the
time that the King James Version of the Bible was
written. In Psalms 46, the 46th word from the
first word is shake and the 46th word from the
last word is spear.
Source: Encyclopedia Britannica

He instructed that his tombstone to be inscribed:
"Good friend, for Jesus' sake forbear
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
And cursed be he that moves my bones."
Source: Encyclopedia Britannica

My favorite William Shakespeare plays:

Romeo and Juliet
"O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?"

Othello
"To mourn a mischief that is past and gone is
the next way to draw new mischief on".

Sonnet 18
"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date".
William Shakespeare

And my favorite Sonnet
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning:

Sonnet XLIII: How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.


My favorite BEAUTIFUL music:

Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven
Ave Maria by Franz Shubert
Hungarian Rhapsody by Liszt

Ave Maria - IN LATIN

Ave Maria
Gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave, ave dominus
Dominus tecum
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Et benedictus
Et benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tuae, Jesus.
Ave Maria

Ave Maria
Mater Dei
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus
Ora pro nobis
Ora, ora pro nobis peccatoribus
Nunc et in hora mortis
Et in hora mortis nostrae
Et in hora mortis nostrae
Et in hora mortis nostrae
Ave Maria
By Franz Shubert

Ave Maria - IN ENGLISH

Sweet Lord of giving
Teach me the meaning of your love
Show me the way of true contentment
and wash the burden of dought from my soul
Take my fear, replace it with knowledge devine
Though I'm weak make me strong
Each day I'll be more understanding
Each day more patient and peaceful within
and faith will lead me closer to wisdom
Let wisdom deliver me closer to Him

Ave Maria - IN SPANISH

Señor dulce del de dar
Enséñeme el significado de su amor
Muéstreme la manera de la alegría verdadera
y lave la carga del esceptcismo de mi alma
Tome mi miedo, substitúyalo por devine del conocimiento
Aunque soy débil hágame fuerte
Cada día seré más de comprensión
Cada día más paciente y pacífico dentro
y la fe me conducirá más cercano a la sabiduría
Deje la sabiduría entregarme más cercano a El

I think so! Lots of things are beatiful and people will never know about them or see them due to fear. It's too long, I don't want to read this, watch that, listen to this, I won't get it.

Es muy cierto ya tenemos suficiente sangre y muerte estos dias... y como bien dice la escritura, cada día tiene suficiente con su propio mal

¡Tanta lágrima, tanto dolor, tanto miedo, tanta desesperación y tantas muertes en este mundo! Estamos destrullendo nuestro mundo con todos estos actos tan terribles.

¡Lástima que no podemos vivir en paz!

No hay solución, pero por hoy, hay que oír linda música y leer poesía de amor y muy romántica. ¿Moonlight Sonata es una linda canción, verdad?

"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."

"Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow." :o)

William Shakespeare, "Romeo and Juliet"

I hope you feel better soon Sunshine!

"Sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy breast!
Would I were sleep and peace, so sweet to rest!
Hence will I to my ghostly father's cell,
His help to crave, and my dear hap to tell."

"This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet."

"If music be the food of love, play on" :)

Franz Schubert's Ave Maria is just about the only one I like
Strauss: Blue Danube

Aww, you are so sweet. Who could tell just reading only this journal entry that you are a really a sweet purring kitten with vicious claws for anyone who crosses her? :)

Pray that my halo doesn't slip, at least for a few days!

"If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle sin is this,
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth the rough touch with a gentle kiss."
Romeo and Juliet

My favorite piece of classical music is "The Four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi
He was a priest but he wrote such happy sounding music in a time when religious music was so serious and heavy.

My favorite Sonnet is the same as yours. Can you imagine being loved the depth and breadth and height the soul can reach? Damn girl now that's love!
playgirl

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."

My darling inspectorjury, yes, that IS love, and I envy you because you and yours had that kind of love.

I'm way too much of an unrealistic romantic that lives in a fantasy world of fairytale dreams that don’t exist. I should never have read Cinderella and Prince Charming as a child.

I'll have to check out The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi because it's your favorite! And anything that's your favorite, I want to know!

Try the band Slowdive if you can find them. They are very relaxing.

Now, if I could find a DAMN lobster around here...

I was drinking when I read that and almost shot some water through my nose into my laptop.

What a classy post!

What's this?
I think I hear a mortal calling? What is he saying? Why I believe he's calling my name...

"Timothy! Humors! Passion! Madman! Lover!...

I conjure thee by PLAYGIRL'S bright eyes,
By her high forehead and her scarlet lip,
By her fine foot, straight leg and quivering thigh
And the domains that there adjacent lie,
That in thy likeness thou appear to us!"

They are wonderful.

Othello made me very sad, almost as sad as Romeo and Juliet.

So many of the Classics I love, Tchaikowski, Bach, Beethoven its hard to decide which is te favorite but when it comes to words, there is no Doubt. Shakespear said it best

"...above all else, to thine own self be true..."

truer words were never spoken, for if you lie to yourself who can you ever believe.
