Bachelors Of Bachelors

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

TO wed, or not to wed;--that is the question:

Whether 'tis nobler in a man to suffer

The slings and sorrows of that blind young archer;

Or fly to arms against a host of troubles,

And at the altar end them. To woo--to wed--

No more; and by this step to say we end

The heartache, and the thousand hopes and fears

The single suffer--'tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wished. To woo--to wed;--

To wed--perchance repent!--ay, there's the rub;

For in that wedded state, what woes may come

When we have launched upon that untried sea

Must give us pause. There's the respect

That makes celibacy of so long life;

For who would bear the quips and jeers of friends,

The husband's pity, and the coquette's scorn,

The vacant hearth, the solitary cell,

The unshared sorrow, and the void within,

When he himself might his redemption gain

With a fair damsel. Who would beauty shun

To toil and plod over a barren heath;

But that the dread of something yet beyond--

The undiscovered country, from whose bourne

No bachelor returns--puzzles the will,

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to others that we know not of!

Thus forethought does make cowards of us all,

And thus the native hue of resolution

Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,

And numberless flirtations, long pursued,

With this regard, their currents turn awry

And lose the name of marriage.

"The Bachelor's Soliloquy" is reprinted from One Hundred Choice Selections. Ed. Phineas Garrett. Philadelphia: Penn Publishing Co., 1897.

Oh wow.

Such blatant plagiarism, time and again, time and again, time and again.

I in my goodness had thought that this person had the imagination to trim and tweak with a passage from Shakespeare's Hamlet and make a humorous poem for us SCers to peruse.

But. . .

as to all my detractors. chillout man. life is short. lets enjoy the small halal things handed our way by the Providence instead of bickering along

Plagiarism is halal? Pretending a poem is yours when it's not halal?

Gimme your dictionary dude please I want to do some cool things. Maybe those are listed as halal there...

you've spent way too much time on this site to make an issue out of this. The jews say that christians and muslims plagiarized their GOD and his BOOKS into their own man-made religions. Nobody seems too bothered about it.
