Celebration Quotation – April 15, 2016

Today’s quote is from Hamlet:

"It is a custom more honored in the breach than the observance." Hamlet, Act I, Scene 4

The actor in the photo is American actor Edwin Adams (1834-1877) in the role of Hamlet .  Adams was best known for playing light comedy, though as a member of Edwin Booth’s touring company in the mid-19th century, he played roles in a number of tragedies, including Romeo & Juliet and Othello.
