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

Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.

Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.

Sweet mercy is nobility's true badge.

A peace is of the nature of a conquest; for then both parties nobly are subdued, and neither party loser.

But O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man's eyes.
