Rosalind/Ganymede

‘Make the doors upon a woman’s wit
and it will out at the casement;
shut that and ’twill out at the keyhole;
stop that , ’twill fly with
the smoke out at the chimney’.

From ‘As you Like It

though many pals think that Bacon wrote Shakespeare or something like that .

Rosalind dresses as a boy in the forest of Arden. She, along with Portia from ‘The Merchant of Venice’ are beautifully written heroines.
