William Shakespeare quotes
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, his acts being seven ages.
Men And Women
There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.
This above all; to thine own self be true.
Doubt thou the stars are fire, Doubt that the sun doth move. Doubt truth to be a liar, But never doubt I love.
The love of heaven makes one heavenly.
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?
Listen to many, speak to a few.
Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
How far that little candle throws its beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.
The course of true love never did run smooth.
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.
When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.
What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.
If music be the food of love, play on.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
No legacy is so rich as honesty.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
