1. Name the first five lines of Shakespeare that come into your head. (Don’t cheat–write the first five that you think of, then check for accuracy later.)
"Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio." --from Hamlet
Shakespeare just enlarges my whole understanding of things. More than any other literary figure, he makes me realize that people never change, have never changed, will never change. I don't mean that in a good way or a bad way. Just a way. And that understanding gives me perspective on things. How that for an amorphous answer? :)

I found this at Girl Detective, via Mental Multivitamin, both of which reference Kiernan Ryan's Guardian article on Shakespeare.
