Celebration Quotation – February 29, 2016

Happy Leap Year Day!  Here’s a quote from Cymbeline:

"Men's vows are women's traitors!" Cymbeline, Act III, Scene 4

The photograph is of American actress Viola Allen (1867-1948) in the role of Imogen, taken in the early 20th century.  Allen – whose parents were both actors – made her professional debut at 15.  She was a popular leading lady in the late 19th and early 20th century, but made her last professional appearance in 1918.
