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

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

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

Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.

Reputation is an idle and most false imposition; oft got without merit, and lost without deserving.

Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
