Quotations by William Shakespeare
William ShakespeareThe fool doth think he is wise - The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.

To hold our destiny - It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

All the world's a stage - 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.

Love me or hate me - Love me or hate me, both are in my favor . . . If you love me, I'll always be in your heart . . . If you hate me, I'll always be in your mind.

A battle of wits - I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see you are unarmed!

Neither a borrower nor a lender be - Neither a borrower nor a lender be; For loan oft loses both itself and friend, And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Be not afraid of greatness - Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.

No sooner met, but they looked - No sooner met, but they looked; no sooner looked, but they loved; no sooner loved, but they sighed; no sooner sighed, but they asked one another the reason.

Born int greatness - Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. Your fate awaits you. Accept it in body and spirit.

Age and youth cannot live together - Crabbed age and youth cannot live together: Youth is full of pleasure, age is full of care; Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather; Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare.
