Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more - and you can't get out of it by unfriending me on Facebook!
Brendan Behan once went on a lecture tour of Canada. On his arrival, a reporter asked him why he'd come to Canada. Behan replied "I saw an advert that said 'Drink Canada Dry', and I thought 'I'll try anything once!'"

(Hamlet)
Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
Just be happy to live in poverty.

(Henry V again:)
Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more...
Where the hell have they all gone now?

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs
Then you still haven't run into ISIS yet.
(Kipling, 'If')

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward...
Bloody hell, how much further!
(Tennyson, 'The Charge of the Light Brigade')

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
Er, hang on while I get my pocket calculator.
