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.
William Shakespeare


Other quotes by William Shakespeare

Fishes live in the sea, as men do a-land; the great ones eat up the little ones.

'Tis not enough to help the feeble up, but to support them after.

Poor and content is rich, and rich enough.

'Tis best to weigh the enemy more mighty than he seems.

As he was valiant, I honour him. But as he was ambitious, I slew him.
