"The rarer action is in virtue than in vengeance."

- Prospero, in Shakespeare's The Tempest

Just finished reading The Tempest for my Environmental Lit class. And I have to say... Although the beginning of this play was quite hard for me to get through, by the last two acts, I could not pry myself away from this story. Shakespeare is a genius beyond what I can understand. His vocabulary consisted of 18,000 words (thank god for footnotes), and he's actually credited with creating many of them, like useful, assassination, fashionable, laughable and lonely. What a guy.
