    Allusions (2)

    • I thought that was Zane Grey Refers to Zane Grey (1872–1939), a popular American author best known for novels and stories of adventure which presented the rugged Old West in an idealized image.

    • Lead on, MacDuff The origin of this phrase is the Shakespearean play Macbeth. In actuality, it is a misquote as Macbeth's actual line in the play is "Lay on Macduff, and damn'd be him that first cries, 'Hold, enough!'" All the world's a stage The origin of this phrase is the Shakespearean play As You Like It. The context of the quote is: All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.
