retro-quotes #28475

retro-quotes: a series of germane remarks, by others, plucked from all over the place, and from all over the time 

"I think Shakespeare was greatly preoccupied with the loss of innocence. I think there has always been an England, an older England, which was sweeter and purer, where the hay smelt better, and the weather was always springtime, and the daffodils blew in the gentle, warm breezes. You feel nostalgia for it in Chaucer, and you feel it all through Shakespeare. I think he was profoundly against the modern age." - Orson Welles, Arena, BBC, 1982
