William Shakespeare was born on April 23, 1564. He died on the same date 52 years later. Here are some life lessons from his works.
- Action is eloquence.
- Assume a virtue, if you have it not.
- Be great in act, as you have been in thought.
- How use doth breed a habit in a man.
- I am not bound to please thee with my answers.
- I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.
- In time we hate that which we often fear.
- Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.
- Praising what is lost makes the remembrance dear.
- Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind.
- The soul of this man is in his clothes.
- We are advertis’d by our loving friends.
- We know what we are, but not what we may be.
- Brevity is the soul of wit.
- There are occasions and causes why and wherefore in all things.
- An honest tale speeds best, being plainly told.
- Sweet mercy is nobility’s true badge.
- Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind.
- All that glisters is not gold.
- Nothing can come of nothing.
- Method in the madness.
- The world’s mine oyster.
