William Shakespeare quotes

Listen to many, speak to a few.

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.

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

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

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.

If music be the food of love, play on.

The wheel is come full circle.

Hell is empty and all the devils are here.

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.

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.

To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.

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

The course of true love never did run smooth.

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.

As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
