Hi,  I'm Niamh Jiménez.

 

Young Student,

Voracious Reader,

Lover of Literature and Science,

 Aspiring Writer.

                                                                                                               

Mis pasiones: el baile, la cultura latinoamericana, los libros.  

 

 

 

"I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again." - Oscar Wilde

 

Algernon: I really don't see anything romantic in proposing. It is very romantic to be in love. But there is nothing romantic about a definite proposal. Why, one may be accepted. One usually is, I believe. Then the excitement is all over. The very essence of romance is uncertainty. (I.39)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
For daws to peck at: I am not what I am."

 

Othello, 1. 1

 

 

"I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands,
organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same
food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases,
heal'd by the same means, warm'd and cool'd by the same winter
and summer, as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If
you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?
And if you wrong us, do we not revenge? If we are like you in the
rest, we will resemble you in that."

- Shylock, The Merchant of Venice, Act 3, scene 1, 58–68

 

"The raven himself is hoarse
That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
Under my battlements. Come, you spirits
That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe topful
Of direst cruelty!"

 

Lady Macbeth,  Act 1, scene 5, 38–43

 

 

 


"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters."

 

"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment."
