Assigned to Listen - Rorschach Audio Archive

“Open your ears, for which of you will stop
The vent of hearing when loud Rumour speaks?
I, from the orient to the drooping west,
Making the wind my post-horse, still unfold
The acts commenced on this ball of earth.
Upon my tongues continual slanders ride,
The which in every language I pronounce,
Stuffing the ears of men with false reports.
I speak of peace while covert enmity
Under the smile of safety wounds the world…”

Henry IV, Part 2, c.1596

See “Rorschach Audio” book pages 23 to 26, 29, 49 to 51, 117 and 132 to 133
