Keanu quote of the day

"I've been interested in him [Shakespeare] since I was about 16 and doing Romeo And Juliet in my English classes. I love him. Where did he come from? I got completely engrossed in acting Shakespeare - in the eloquence, in the low and high humour, in the agonies and the ecstasies. King Lear is my favourite."

Shakespeare
I liked that other quote, too, where he said that he sometimes carries the sonnets with him and tries to learn them by heart.

Reminds me of homework back in my school years and how I got confused with the order of the lines of a poem.
It always was a great feeling to get it right eventually, though.
I invented melodies to recite them to so I would keep them in the right order. :-D

Well, he's a professional so I don't think he really has any of those problems but it's fun picturing him marvel at the same expressions.

I haven't read King Lear yet. Is it that good? :-D

Re: Shakespeare
My main knowledge of Shakespeare is Keanu related so I could not say much about Lear. One of the cool things is that I started to appreciate the sonnets after reading of his affection for them. I am confident he will get a stage performance together eventually and then I will drive myself crazy until I get tickets. In my defense, I wont travel outside of the US/Canada to see it. I don't think I will... :)
