Celebration Quotation – March 9, 2016

Today’s quote is from As You Like It:

"Thou art not for the fashion of these times, where none will sweat but for promotion." As You Like It, Act II, Scene 3

The image is a sketch by artist Louis John Rhead (1857-1926) published in an edition of Lamb’s Tales from Shakespeare in 1918. Rhead was born in England, but moved to America at the age of 24, and eventually became an American citizen.  He was a popular magazine illustrator, and he also illustrated a number of classic children’s books, including Treasure Island, Heidi, Robinson Crusoe, Swiss Family Robinson, and Robin Hood.
