I got to see Julius Caesar at Shakespeare Theatre last week (thanks, G-friend). Really good. And interesting-- the most traditional treatment of Shakespeare I've seen in a really long time, maybe ever.

I totally forgot that one of my favorite lines comes from Julius Caesar. No, not the one about friends, Romans, and countrymen. This one:

There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
