“Students were expected to learn hundreds of lines from the Greek and Roman classics, then, later, from poetry in their native tongues. This tradition has faded from our lives, and something powerful has been lost.”
Ken Ludwig, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare

“To know some Shakespeare gives you a head start in life.”
