    Farce follow'd Comedy, and reach'd her prime.
    In ever-laughing Foote's fantastic time;
    Mad wag! who pardon'd none, nor spared the best,
    And turn'd some very serious things to jest.
    Nor church nor state escaped his public sneers,
    Arms nor the gown, priests, lawyers, volunteers;
    "Alas, poor Yorick!" now forever mute!
    Whoever loves a laugh must sigh for Foote.
    We smile, perforce, when histrionic scenes
    Ape the swoln dialogue of kings and queens,
    When "Chrononhotonthelogos must die,"
    And Arthur struts in mimic majesty.

And Tragedy should blush as much to stoop
To the low mimic follies of a farce,

To wake the soul by tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius, and to mend the heart;
To make mankind, in conscious virtue bold,
Live o'er each scene, and be what they behold--
For this the tragic Muse first trod the stage.

Someone who's like Angelina Jolie because she isn't scared of not being pretty. She's my favourtie actress. I'd love a role like the one she played in 'Girl, Interrupted'. I've never met her.. I'd be so nervous! And star-struck!
