Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.
I am always surprised when I read literature and come across a common phrase like the one above. It is so interesting to me that these words become so much a part of our lives, yet we’ve no idea where they came from. One day, reading a poem or play it will happen to you. Shakespeare, Coleridge, and many others have contributed so much to slang, idioms, and our vocabulary in general. It would be so cool to be the one to create these ideas, phrases, and images that live on into the world — ages beyond ourselves.
