there is no middle option

"Have I the aspic in my lips? Dost fall?
If thou and nature can so gently part,
The stroke of death is as a lover’s pinch,
Which hurts, and is desired. Dost thou lie still?
If thus thou vanishest, thou tell’st the world
It is not worth leave-taking."

-

Antony and Cleopatra (Act V, Scene II), William Shakespeare

My English professor read us this excerpt during lecture (he was explaining that a prevalent theme in the play is the idea of transcendence from this world, of pursuing something greater than territory or power), and as he reached “leave-taking” his voice cracked a bit. I looked up to see that his eyes were a bit watery and his nose redder than before. He was silent for a few moments, shook his head, and whispered, “Wow.” It was possibly one of the most moving and awe-inspiring moments I’ve ever experienced as a student; I was especially proud to be an English major in that moment. That my professor, who is a Shakesperian and an esteemed professor of English at one of the world’s top universities, was almost moved to tears by this short passage goes to show the sheer beauty and power of literature and why studying it is just as important as studying, say, science or math.

These Drugs Were Prescriptions Before They Hit the Streets

"I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful - a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild."
