“To be or not to be?”

“That is the question”. Answers on a postcard, please.


Hmmmmm. Long silence. Still thinking?

OK. Maybe start by sending in some sayings of others, in poetry or plain prose. Our favourites which have inspired us very personally towards insights about what we are doing here; and what we make of that mind-boggling fact. This post is allocated to you: your space for initiating a thread which has not begun with the editors of London Toast. Big or small ideas, original or garnered, will lead to others. Shakespeare’s brainstorming speeches expand outwards, even when they are soliloquies. They are all-inclusive, roaming at will into imaginative corners of human experience, seemingly not subject to accepted crowd dogma. Before the Age of Reason, there was reason. Long, long before even the Middle Ages, earliest man pondered, however briefly, the choices each day exacted. So there was never any way out for the intellectually fevered young Hamlet, but action. Which is not always the right answer…

One thought on ““To be or not to be?”

  1. by William Butler Yeats :
    “He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven”

    HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:

    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
