Celebration Quotation – January 10, 2016

We couldn’t let the week pass without at least one quote from Romeo and Juliet:

'My bounty is as boundless as the sea..." - Romeo & Juliet; III.2

Lilian Adelaide Neilson (1847- 1880), was an English stage actress.  Born Elizabeth Ann Brown, she began her career in London at the age of 15, and toured both Engalnd and America playing many of Shakespeare’s ladies before her death at the young age of 32.  This photo, taken by celebrated American photographer Sarony Napoleon, is of Neilson in the role of Juliet.
