my hidden shame

qotd, it's an ethos

The Player: We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.” 


"Guildenstern: It could have been - it didn't have to be obscene! I was prepared. But it's this, is it? No enigma, no dignity, nothing classical, poetic - only this, a comic pornographer and a rabble of prostitutes! 
The Player: You should have caught us in better times. We were purists then. "

-- Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Tom Stoppard, which I am making my playwriting students experience.
