Take, O take these lips away That so sweetly were foresworn And those eyes the break of day Lights that so misled the morn That my kisses bring again, bring again Seals of love, but sealed in vain, sealed in vain. Measure for Measure, Act IV, Scene II

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
