Celebration Quotation – April 27, 2016

Today’s quote – quite a famous one – comes from the “Scottish Play.:Tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time." Macbeth, Act V, Scene 5 The actor in the photo is Robert B. Mantell (1854-1928.)  He was born in Scotland, toured extensively in both the U.K and America, but never really achieved acclaim in London or on Broadway.   Despite the fact that he was never a star, he seemed to have worked steadily, and was noted for his work in productions of Shakespeare plays.  He also made a number of silent films, though he began his film career at the age of 61.
