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

He that is giddy thinks the world turns round.

Words, words, mere words, no matter from the heart.

Lawless are they that make their wills their law.

By that sin fell the angels.

Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.
