A Maven and Her Tooth Were Recently Parted



LEONATO


I pray thee, peace. I will be flesh and blood;
For there was never yet philosopher
That could endure the toothache patiently,
However they have writ the style of gods
And made a push at chance and sufferance.

Much Ado About Nothing, 5.1, 21-39

I have three books of quotes. So handy. Love that Shakespeare, he thought of everything.

You would be amazed at the images that come up in Google when you search for a toothache.

Good one, Sheri!

And tonight we switch to Poe.

Quoth the Maven, "Nevermore."
