Project 365 day one hundred and seventy two, a rose by any other name

shakespeare romeo and juliet a rose by any other name

‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call’d,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

Shakespeare‘s Romeo and Juliet, 1600

I love a bit of Shakespeare, but so glad the english language has evolved to become so much simpler than it was, I can now butcher it without twis, twas, was or tis!
