William Shakespeare


● Action is eloquence.

● How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.

● What win I, if I gain the thing I seek? A dream, a breath, a froth of fleeting joy. Who buys a minute’s mirth to wail a week? Or sells eternity to ‘get a toy? For one sweet grape who will the vine destroy? Or what fond beggar, but to touch the crown, Would with the sceptre straight be strucken down?

● There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so

● The rest is silence.

● The night is long that never finds the day.

● The empty vessel makes the loudest sound(“emptiest” (least intelligent) people are the loudest, while often the quietest people have the most wisdom)

● Neither a borrower nor a lender be, For loan oft loses both itself and friend, And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

● Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice.

● O momentary grace of mortal men,Which we more hunt for than the grace of god! Who builds his hope in air of your good looks Lives like a drunken sailor on a mast,Ready with every nod to tumble down Into the fatal bowels of the deep.

● A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

● Sweet are the uses of adversity which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head.

● Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once. — William Shakespeare

● O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!It is the green-ey’d monster, which doth mock The meat it feeds on.

● The worst is not, So long as we can say, ‘This is the worst.’.

● you gods, will give us. Some faults to make us men.

● unaccommodated man is no more but such a poor, bare, forked animal as thou art.

● The labor we delight in cures pain.

● Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.

● Poor and content is rich and rich enough; but riches endless is as poor and winter to him that ever fears he shall be poor.

● Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.
