Celebration Quotation – April 12, 2016

Today’s quote is from Twelfth Night:

"The whirligig of time brings in his revenges." Twelfth Night, Act V, Scene 1

We love the concept of Time as a “whirligig.”

 

The image is from a watercolor painting by artist John Massey Wright (1777-1876).  Wright was well known for his illustrations of scenes from Shakespeare.  He was also no stranger to the theatre, as he was sometimes employed as a scenic artist.  See more of his paintings here at ArtUK.org.
