I don't know much more than what is printed on these, but I find them quite interesting!

The first is an image of Romeo and Juliet from (what else) "Romeo and Juliet" with the following passage: Act II Scene II "Goodnight, goodnight ! parting is such sweet sorrow."

The second one is quite lovely with the image of Titania and Bottom from "A Midsummer-Night's Dream" with this passage: Act IV Scene I "Sleep thou, and I will wind thee in my arms. So doth the woodbine the sweet honey-suckle Gently entwist;"

The third is an image of Henry V from "Henry V" in which he is kneeling and humbling asking, "O God of battles ! steel my solders' hearts;" (Act IV Scene I. I find the pointed toes on his shoes quite disturbing, though.

And the fourth, who reminds me of a strutting cock in the hen coop, is an image of Malvolio from "Twelfth-Night" with this passage: Act II Scene V "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them."

I hope you enjoyed viewing a few of my favorites as I have enjoyed sharing them with you.
