Here's where you can find a wonderful collection of Shakespeare quotes. A famous English poet and playwright, his plays have transcended the ages and are still widely studied and performed throughout the world today.
William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616), is often called "The Bard" or England's national poet. He is even regarded by some as the greatest writer in the English language.
I studied one of his famous plays, "Romeo & Juliet" during my Literature class in school years ago. Back then, I had a tough time getting the meaning of his play due to the language used. It's only upon the teacher's patient explanations in lessons did I gain a better appreciation of "Romeo & Juliet".
It's only recently I learned that many short phrases of Shakespeare's poetry are widely used and appreciated by many till this day.
I hope this collection will inspire and give you some food for thought. Enjoy!
