Today’s sentence comes from Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare.

ANGELO: Then must your brother die.

ISABELLA: And ’twere the chapter way:

Better it were a brother die at once,

Than that a sister, by redeeming him

Should die forever.”



    1. The Merchant of Venice and A Midsummer Night’s Dream are both wonderful! Of course, I read The Merchant of Venice a long time ago so my memory of it is a bit hazy but I do remember loving Portia.
