A Man Not A God!

Believe it or not, Bush will be gone now in a matter of days. Well, we elected him! Here’s Willie Shakespeare:


“Ye gods, it doth amaze me,
A man of such a feeble temper should
So get the start of the majestic world,
And bear the palm alone. (1.2.129)

Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus; and we petty men
Walk under his huge legs, and peep about
To find ourselves dishonourable graves.
Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings. (1.2.135)”

Thanks, Juan Cole, for “W.’s Twilight: A Man of Feeble Temper”. Great reading!
