IQ: For love of The Bard 

A skeptic once said that the only reason Shakespeare is still so popular is his wondrous command of the English language. I must ever so humbly disagree. Shakespeare understood human nature, that ineffable quality that makes us who we are. Shakespeare ranks up there with Leonardo DaVinci, Beethoven, John Coltrane, Chaucer, Jane Austen, and countless others who have contributed something to the human race which will never be erased and will always inspire us. This knave offers humble thanks.
