For this 1st Weekend Quote, I pick:
"What's in a name? that which we call rose, by any other name would smell as sweet" ~ JULIET, Act II, Scene II
What makes me so into this quote is that right at the moment I read it, I remembered another quote by Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables);
"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage." ~ ANNE SHIRLEY, Anne of Green Gables
I Iike the Indonesian translation (which I actually have posted here);
"Aku pernah membaca bahwa disebut apapun setangkai mawar, aromanya akan sama harumnya, tapi aku tidak pernah bisa mempercayainya. Aku tidak percaya bahwa setangkai mawar akan sama indahnya jika disebut bunga tahi ayam atau kol sigung."
And there I had a good laugh imagining Juliet and Anne having argument about name and rose >.<
Just-a-note: I know it's a bit odd that Juliet's line made me remember Anne's line, while for some others it might be the opposite. But I well, read Anne's first before Juliet's, so.. here we are :p
