The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

William Shakespeare (26 April 1564 (baptised) – 23 April 1616) was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon”. His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, two epitaphs on a man named John Combe, one epitaph on Elias James, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

  1. March 15, 44 B.C.: Beware! Julius Caesar laughed off a soothsayer’s warning and was assassinated by his frenemy 2056 years ago yesterday.

  2. Yay, I survived the Ids of March for having a brain freeze.
