Famous quotes containing the word shakespeare:

    Come, Kate, thou art perfect in lying down.
    Come, quick, quick, that I may lay my head in thy lap.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It is nor hand, nor foot,
    Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
    Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
    What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
    By any other word would smell as sweet;
    So Romeo would, were he not Romeo called,
    Retain that dear perfection which he owes
    Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
    And for thy name, which is no part of thee,
    Take all myself.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Thou thyself hast been a libertine,
    As sensual as the brutish sting itself.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
