It is rare for people to be asked the question which puts them squarely in front of themselves.

As said by John Proctor in the masterpiece play that is The Crucible by Arthur Miller. Published in 1953, but set in 1692, the story is based on the notorious Salem witch trials which tore a small Massachusetts town against itself. Miller admitted the play was an allegory for McCarthism, when hundreds of Americans were aggressively accused of being communists or communist sympathisers.

Line(s) of the Day #RomeoandJuliet

Romeo and Juliet book cover

These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triump die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume.

As spoken by Friar Lawrence in the eternally iconic play Romeo and Juliet (1597) by William Shakespeare.
