One Up Me

Recommended Posts

If I were concerned about my reputation, I would wake up and stop dreaming, because I NEVER worry about my reputation.

If I were concerned about my reputation, I would say something smarter than this for more points....:dry:

But obviously, I don't.....:P:D:unsure:

If I were concerned about my reputation, I would probably go insane... or more insane depending on what you think of me already

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,

His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,

Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.

And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel

And shining morning face, creeping like snail

Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,

Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad

Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,

Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,

Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,

Seeking the bubble reputation

Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,

In fair round belly with good capon lined,

With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,

Full of wise saws and modern instances;

And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts

Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,

With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,

His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide

For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,

Turning again toward childish treble, pipes

And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,

That ends this strange eventful history,

Is second childishness and mere oblivion,

Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

There really is no point in trying to one up The Bard!

You hate a guy who was dead before your great great great.... grandparents were born???

Although he's not nearly as good as Poe! he is pretty awesome. But this is a matter of taste and taste is a personal thing unique to each and every individual as unique to them as their fingerprints.

Having said that I cannot fault you for having poor taste ;)

I blame smoking for leaving me with bad taste.

I appreciate Poe, but only through works like the Oblong Box and Silence--a Fable. It turns me off to hear people quote the Raven...
