Bob Dylan awarded Nobel Prize for Literature

"May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young."

Some people find this year's Nobel prize winner for literature surprising and unusual. What's your opinion? Do you know any Bob Dylan's songs? Which one is your favourite?

Here's one of my favourite by William Blake:

         And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
        Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand 
        And Eternity in an hour.

Our Shakespeare Day

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acting being seven ages. (Shakespeare)
