Today is the day of William Shakespeare's birth and death. I imagine not many people die on their birthday but it does happen.

I read a lot of Shakespeare in college (Theater major, English minor, it's expected that Shakespeare would be on the curriculum). One of my favorite quotes is

Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts

It's from Henry the Sixth. Unfortunately it's not truly a love scene as the two characters being asked to hold hands are Warwick and Clarence, but taken out of context it is a sweet thought.
