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.

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."

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
