How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
That has such people in't!
The Tempest, Act 5 Scene 1, William Shakespeare
Watching the Paralympic Opening Ceremony tonight, I couldn't help but post one of the quotes they used in the ceremony. It's one of my favourite passages and one of my favourite of Shakespeare's plays - having seen the 'Shakespeare: Staging the World' exhibition at the British Museum the fact that they used Ian McKellen made it all the more special for me. The whole display tonight was just breathtaking.
