William Shakespeare quotes
While you live, tell truth, and shame the devil!
William Shakespeare, Henry IV
Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased,
Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow...
And with some sweet oblivious antidote
Cleanse the stuff'd bosom of that perilous stuff
Which weighs upon the heart?
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course.
William Shakespeare, Henry VI
The nature of bad news infects the teller.
William Shakespeare, Antony And Cleopatra
If love be blind, love cannot hit the mark.
William Shakespeare, Romeo And Juliet
I wasted time, and now doth time wate me.
William Shakespeare, Richard II
Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.
William Shakespeare, The Tempest
Nothing emboldens sin so much as mercy.
William Shakespeare, Timon Of Athens
Men's evil manners live in brass; their virtues we write in water.
William Shakespeare, Henry VIII
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove,
O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his ending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116
