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.
William Shakespeare

Other quotes by William Shakespeare

Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.

If it be a sin to covet honor, I am the most offending soul.

In time we hate that which we often fear.

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

There's many a man has more hair than wit.
