Pear, Gorgonzola & Pecan Salad

Sage Wisdom:
*
And, most dear actors,
eat no onions or garlic,
for we are to utter sweet breath;
and I do not doubt but to hear them say,
it is a sweet comedy.
No more words: Away! Go, away!
~A Midsummer Night’s Dream (act 4, scene 2)
*
Mine eyes smell onions; I shall weep anon.
~All’s Well That Ends Well (act 5, scene 3 )
*
Do you think because you are virtuous,
that there shall be no more cakes and ale?
~Twelfth Night (act 2, scene 3)

From what Shakespearean play
did our pictures steal their words today?

    “Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety: other women cloy the appetites they feed, but she makes hungry where most she satisfies.”
    -Antony and Cleopatra
    Act II Scene II

    Appropriate, no?
