William Shakespeare
“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 barque, 
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. 
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
Within his bending 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
“Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? 
Thou art more lovely and more temperate: 
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, 
And summer's lease hath all too short a date: 
Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines, 
And too often is his gold complexion dimm'd: 
And every fair from fair sometimes declines, 
By chance or natures changing course untrimm'd; 
By thy eternal summer shall not fade, 
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; 
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, 
When in eternal lines to time thou growest: 
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, 
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.”

“I believe it was Shakespeare, or possibly Howard Cosell, who first observed that marriage is very much like a birthday candle, in that 'the flames of passion burn brightest when the wick of intimacy is first ignited by the disposable butane lighter of physical attraction, but sooner or later the heat of familiarity causes the wax of boredom to drip all over the vanilla frosting of novelty and the shredded coconut of romance.' I could not have phrased it better myself.”

What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals!

“Actors are so fortunate. They can choose whether they will appear in tragedy or in comedy, whether they will suffer or make merry, laugh or shed tears. But in real life it is different.

Throughout the work of William Shakespeare, it is evident that the bard saw the world, to paraphrase Jacques in Shakespeare's As You Like It, as "a stage, and all the men and women merely players upon it".

Shakespeare had a good deal to say about life, expressed through the lines, speeches, and soliloquies he accorded a host of heroic, tragic, fanciful, humorous, or historical characters.

Over the centuries, Shakespeare's work has become the source of many sayings about life still in current usage, in addition to a host of famous Shakespeare quotes. These include:

'In a pickle' - the origins of which have been traced to Shakespeare's The Tempest (1610), Act V, Scene I. Trinculo: "I have been in such a pickle since I saw you last".

'Eaten out of house and home' - courtesy of Mistress Quickly who exclaimed that "He [Sir John] hath eaten me out of house and home"; this particular saying first appears in Shakespeare's Henry IV pt II (c.1596-1599), Act II, Scene I.

'Milk of human kindness' - found in Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth, this particular saying appears in the English language at some time between c.1603 - 1607.
