As withered weed through cruell winters tine,That feeles the warmth of sunny beames reflection,Liftes up his head, that did before declineAnd gins to spread his leafe before the faire sunshine.
Hark! hark! the lark at heaven's gate sings, And Phœbus 'gins arise, His steeds to water at those springs On chalic'd flowers that lies. And winking Mary-buds begin To ope their golden eyes; With everything that pretty is, My lady sweet, arise!william shakespeare
The glow-worm shows the matin to be near, And 'gins to pale his uneffectual fire.william shakespeare
Criticism should be done by critics, and a critic should have some training and some love of the medium he is discussing. But these days, gossip-columnist training seems to be enough qualification. I suppose an ability to stand on your feet through interminable cocktail parties and swig interminable gins in between devouring masses of fried prawns may just possibly help you to understand and appreciate what a director is getting at, but for the life of me I can't see how.Peter Sellers
