William Shakespeare quotes

But O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man's eyes.

Love to faults is always blind, always is to joy inclined. Lawless, winged, and unconfined, and breaks all chains from every mind.

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.

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.

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

An overflow of good converts to bad.

Women may fall when there's no strength in men.

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

Now, God be praised, that to believing souls gives light in darkness, comfort in despair.

How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?

This above all; to thine own self be true.

Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?

We know what we are, but know not what we may be.

Life is as tedious as twice-told tale, vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.

Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.

Talking isn't doing. It is a kind of good deed to say well; and yet words are not deeds.

A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.

Words without thoughts never to heaven go.

The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils.

False face must hide what the false heart doth know.
