“The fact is, Shakespeare was not sectarian; he pleaded nobody’s mission, he stated nobody’s cause. He has written with a view to be a mirror of things as they are; and shows the office of the true poet and literary man, which is to recreate the soul of man as God created it, and human society as man has made it.” 
– George Dawson
  19th-Century English preacher & lecturer

“Teaching the poems and plays of Shakespeare opens the reader to the expanse and depth of the human soul, because the characters in the plays represent a cross-section of human life and aspiration. And Shakespeare does it better than any other writer in the history of literature.”  
- Sam Blumenfeld, author & educator
