This article made me go hmm. I was expecting antiquated words, not things we say in everyday life. Most of us who love the work of Shakespeare can only dream of following in his footsteps in any way, yet we actually use his own words without realizing it…until now. I love the idea that my fiction and screenwriting endeavors include words originating with the Bard himself. I also love the way things a writer did as part of his work found a vital place in the legacy and heritage of the English language. We can’t all be Shakespeare, but like him we may be doing things right now that will become a thread in the great tapestry of language…even history. The very idea could carry an overwhelming sense of responsibility, but fortunately knowledge of such feats comes long after those responsible have turned to dust.
