Weekend Quote (7)

If it be true that good wine needs no bush, ’tis true that a good play needs no epilogue.
Yet to good wine they do use good bushes; and good plays prove the better by the help of good epilogues.

I found this quote at the epilogue of As You Like It by William Shakespeare. I do agree with this. Many writers waste their words on epilogue, kill their reader’s imaginations, or tell some useless facts. But good writers would know what is necessary to be told on epilogue. They may add another surprise, contemplation, or a simple fact but important to be told.

  1. Haha, As You Like It. Aku awalnya malah bingung loh si Shakespeare nulis apaan sih di epilogue itu. But the play is good, and better with epilogue.
