Celebration Quotation – April 28, 2016

Today’s quote is from Henry Vi, Part 3:

"Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind; the thief doth fear each bush an officer." Henry Vi Part 3, Act V, Scene 6

Gloucester seemed to know a lot about suspicion and guilt – though he doesn’t seem the least bit guilty about scheming his way to the top to become King Richard III.

The image is an engraving of a daguerrotype of actor James William Wallack (1794-1864).  Wallace was born in England, and had success both on tour in the UK and on the London stage.  He finished his career in America as a popular Shakespearean actor.
