Neither a borrower nor a lender be

Shakespeare has been with me, all my life. In school, I studied Richard II, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, The Tempest and Macbeth. My father loved Shakespeare and could recite, off the cuff, from at least a dozen of the Bard's plays. On his 90th birthday, he recited the Seven Ages of Man from As You Like It, at a lunch in his honour.
