According to Shakespeare, we’re alright!
I know some of you lie awake at night worrying whether or not you’re trustworthy, panicking that you might be a nutter, contemplating whether or not you are capable of feeling real emotions.
Well me too. But as it turns out, all of us are just fine according to William Shakespeare. The character Lorenzo in the Merchant of Venice says, “The man that hath no music in himself, nor is moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils: The motions of his spirits are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erubus; let no such man be trusted.”
I think there might be something in these words. A human that isn’t moved in some way by music, that doesn’t feel some kind of emotion when they hear dramatic classical, swinging jazz, screaming metal or just a sweet pop melody, must surely be lacking something inside. Beware of that person!
So as we love nothing more than the sounds of a rocking drum beat, I think that means we’re ok. Let your friends, girlfriend, wife, boyfriend, pet goat and everyone else know that you’re trustworthy.
Enjoy a peaceful nights sleep safe with this new knowledge.
