Celebration Quotation – January 23, 2016

Today’s quote comes from The Merry Wives of Windsor:

"Here will be an old abusing of God's patience and the King's English." The Merry Wives of Windsor, Act I, Scene 4

 

We love this photo – the actress pictured is Anne Hartley Gilbert (1821-1904), who had a successful acting career in England and America that spanned more than 50 years.  She performed right up to the day before her death at age 83.  This photo is from a production of Merry Wives from the late 1800’s.
