Wisdom of William Shakespeare

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

Wisdom of William Shakespeare

The course of true love never did run smooth.

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

William Shakespeare

If music be the food of love, play on.

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

Life … is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.

Men at some time are the masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.

Wisdom of William Shakespeare

Wisdom of William Shakespeare

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. —Jaques in As You Like It, William Shakespeare
