The Voyage of Your Life

Ship At Sea Painting

“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.”

William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

  1. As I read this, I felt a sudden admiration for Shakespeare. This extract is so beautiful in so many ways… It just made me want to steal a look at the workings of his mind… Has this ever happened to you, Vincent?
    I thank you for sharing this here; for reminding me why I fell in love with words in the first place.
    Its strange, how certain things affect certain people, isn’t it? 🙂
