And to eat no fish. King Lear Act 1 Scene 4 by William Shakespeare

A diet that includes fish is mad important! Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish build your gray matter.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

  • Help maintain a healthy heart by lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of sudden death, heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes.
  • Aid healthy brain function and infant development of vision and nerves during pregnancy.
  • May decrease the risk of depression, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and diabetes.
  • May prevent inflammation and reduce the risk of arthritis.

If Kent was a genius like RG founder Maboo, he’d eat a whole package of smoked salmon every morning with corn tortillas and avacado (also a superfood)!

April 19th, 2014

please don’t do that to the translation, the actual translation to this is: Eating fish was held to be the sign of a Roman Catholic, of one disaffected to the government. Hence “to eat no fish” is equivalent (equal to) to a profession of loyalty and orthodoxy.

Hart Crane Passage by Alex Dimitrov

Hart Crane was an INSANELY talented poet that had his poetry game on point! He was also gay AND handsome (explains Alex’s crush!). Unfortunately Hart Crane flirted with the wrong sailors while aboard a steamship to New York in 1932. The sailors kicked his ass, and Hart — depressed, rejected, and hurt — flung himself into the Gulf of Mexico. If only Hart Crane had lived in 2012! If only!…

Every time I felt pleasure I held my breath— Dear Friend: I have nearly died three times since morning by Alex Dimitrov

Everyone has experienced a moment that they wished would last forever… The speaker acknowledges that one can experience MANY of these moments, thus “Every time” (implying more than once). Still, the speaker holds onto these moments; he holds them close, inside, and internalizes them. How many moments of pleasure do we have? It can’t be known, so take the Dimitrov route and relish them.

Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none:
So all hail, Macbeth and Banquo!
Macbeth Act 1 Scene 3 by William Shakespeare 5

This, ladies and gents, is what we call foreshadowing (spoilers, if you’re reading this in 2013). Banquo is lesser AND greater? Not as happy, but more so? Not a king, but the father of kings? Macbeth is totally screwed.

It’s important to note here that if Banquo’s children will be kings, we can infer that Meacbeth’s won’t be. Macbeth can make this same assumption, and it likely motivates his later actions.
