A (stolen) thought a day

25 Feb

My thought today comes from the legendary actor Christopher Plummer. He is a man who I swear I was going to have as an honorary grandparent after The Sound of Music came into my life.

Today he features in The Times on Saturday supplement and he has come out with some right corners in his interview but here is my favourite.

Shakespeare is really very simple . I say that with full sincerity. If you obey the rhythms of the language, it totally is. All the great written moments in Shakespeare are simply written. How much more simple can you get than “The rest is silence”?
