Celebration Quotation – January 17, 2016

Today’s quote comes from Twelfth Night:

"Love sought is good, but given unsought is better." Twelfth Night, Act III, Scene ; Elizabeth Farren as Olivia

The drawing is of British actress Elizabeth Farren (1759-1829.)  Born in Ireland, Farren was a celebrated actress of the London stage, well-known for playing Shakespeare as well as great comic parts in Restoration plays such as Way of the World and She Stoops to Conquer.
