Famous quotes containing the word shakespeare:

    But we are spirits of another sort.
    I with the morning’s love have oft made sport,
    And like a forester the groves may tread
    Even till the eastern gate, all fiery-red,
    Opening on Neptune with fair blessèd beams,
    Turns unto yellow gold his salt green streams.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A plague o’ both your houses.
    They have made worms’ meat of me.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The moon shines bright. In such a night as this,
    When the sweet wind did gently kiss the trees,
    And they did make no noise, in such a night
    Troilus methinks mounted the Troyan walls,
    And sighed his soul toward the Grecian tents,
    Where Cressid lay that night.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
