You speak an infinite deal of nothing.These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triump die, like fire and powder Which, as they kiss, consume

From women’s eyes this doctrine I derive:They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;They are the books, the arts, the academes,That show, contain, and nourish all the world.

I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see you are unarmed!The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

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?

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.

To be, or not to be: that is the question:Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,And by opposing end them. To die: to sleep;

This above all: to thine own self be true,And it must follow, as the night the day,Thou canst not then be false to any man.Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once

William Shakespeare Quotes

 Shakespeare Quotes

Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,Signifying nothing.

Love all, trust a few,Do wrong to none: be able for thine enemy Rather in power than use, and keep thy friend Under thy own life’s key: be cheque’d for silence,But never tax’d for speech.

The course of true love never did run smooth.Listen to many, speak to a few.Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.

A peace is of the nature of a conquest; for then both parties nobly are subdued, and neither party loser.It is a wise father that knows his own child.

The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind.

No legacy is so rich as honesty.Love to faults is always blind, always is to joy inclined. Lawless, winged, and unconfined, and breaks all chains from every mind.

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.An overflow of good converts to bad.Women may fall when there’s no strength in men.

William Shakespeare Quotes

The empty vessel makes the loudest sound.Life is as tedious as twice-told tale, vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.

How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?

Words without thoughts never to heaven go.False face must hide what the false heart doth know.Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.

What’s done can’t be undone.Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds.The golden age is before us, not behind us.They do not love that do not show their love.

Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.I burn, I pine, I perish.They have been at a great feast of languages, and stol’n the scraps.I would give all my fame for a pot of ale, and safety.

Come, let’s away to prison;We two alone will sing like birds i’ the cage:When thou dost ask me blessing, I’ll kneel down,And ask of thee forgiveness: so we’ll live,And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh At gilded butterflies, and hear poor rogues Talk of court news.

To die, to sleep -To sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub,For in this sleep of death what dreams may come…With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds,Or bends with the remover to remove.O no, it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken

It is the star to every wand’ring barque,Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle’s compass come;Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,But bears it out even to the edge of doom.If this be error and upon me proved,I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate:Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer’s lease hath all too short a date

Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,And too often is his gold complexion dimm’d:And every fair from fair sometimes declines,By chance or natures changing course untrimm’d;By thy eternal summer shall not fade,Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou growest:So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

William Shakespeare Quotes

All causes shall give way: I am in bloodStepp’d in so far that, should I wade no more,Returning were as tedious as go o.

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,—For a charm of powerful trouble,Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.Double, double toil and trouble;Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,Is the immediate jewel of their souls:Who steals my purse steals trash; ’tis something, nothing;’twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands;But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him,And makes me poor indeed.

Doubt thou the stars are fire;Doubt that the sun doth move;Doubt truth to be a liar;But never doubt I love.The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,To the last syllable of recorded time;And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,Signifying nothing.

My only love sprung from my only hate!Too early seen unknown, and known too late!Prodigious birth of love it is to me,That I must love a loathed enemy.

I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.Don’t waste your love on somebody, who doesn’t value it.Sweet are the uses of adversity which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head.

William Shakespeare Quotes

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god.

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?Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
