Tips for Use. This post showing up on March 15, it is expected for the theme to be “Beware the ides of March”. But it would be too obvious. Instead here is a quotation from Julius Caesar but with more subtle (as well as usable) significance. Applicable and utterable when someone warns you about the danger of your enterprise(s) but you will not budge. Change ‘Caesar’ to your name, “What can be avoided whose end is purposed by the mighty gods? Yet John Caruthers shall go forth.”
Equally a suggested answer, for example, during a job interview when you are pressured to explain something for which you have no responsibility. Also applicable during any presentation, meeting or whenever you are asked to explain the unexplainable.
To receive an (almost) daily copy of the latest blog and Shakespearean ‘weapon’ enter your details in the contact form. And I promise, no sales calls, trade leads, venomous schemes, hidden plots, commercial ploys, psychological tricks, leads exchanges, barter proposals, suggestions or offers of any kind imaginable (and unimaginable).
Of course, if you acquire the book “Your Daily Shakespeare” you will not only enjoy it but you will find it very useful. After all Shakespeare wrote it, I simply compiled it to make Shakespeare very “user friendly” as they say. And if you wish I will even sign it. But this is the extent of any “sales” effort, call or solicitation.
In the play. Calpurnia, Caesar’s wife, attempts to convince him not to go to the Senate on March 15 on the ground of strange observed events, but Caesar does not change his mind.
