Who was shakespear? Did 'William Shakespeare' even exist? Or was all the work written by Francis Bacon? Edward De Vere? Sir Walter Raleigh perhaps? this is a long list so I wont go on....look it up

Have you ever thought about suicide, or known anyone who did?
-i have and i realized that it is for people who are too weak to deal with life
What do you think stops people from committing suicide?
-the fear of death i guess
Things won are done; joy's soul lies in the doing.
