Quotes by William Shakespeare

The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?
God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
So foul and fair a day I have not seen.
Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
What is past is prologue.
Lord, Lord, how subject we old men are to this vice of lying!
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
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.
The evil that men do lives after them;The good is oft interred with their bones.
The undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns.
This above all; to thine own self be true.
O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil.
Sweet are the uses of adversity.
Having nothing, nothing can he lose.
The golden age is before us, not behind us.
Where every something, being blent together turns to a wild of nothing.
Expectation is the root of all heartache.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child!
Modest doubt is called the beacon of the wise.
How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?
My age is as a lusty winter, frosty but kindly.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice.
