She said a scholarship was my only hope for a future and lent me her private books for the summer. Whenever I opened one, T. Ray said, 'Who do you think you are, Julius Shakespeare?' The man sincerely thought that was Shakespeare's first name, and if you think I should have corrected him, you are ignorant about the art of survival. He also referred to me as Miss Brown-Nose-in-a-Book and occasionally as Miss Emily-Big-Head-Diction. He meant Dickinson, but again, there are things you let go by.Sue Monk Kidd One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Sue Monk Kidd: She said a scholarship was my only hope for a future and lent me her

My glass shall not persuade me I am old, So long as youth and thou are of one date; But when in thee time's furrows I behold, Then look I death my days should expiate.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: My glass shall not persuade me I am old, So long as youth and thou

Who having into truth, by telling of it,
Made such a sinner of his memory,
To credit his own lie.

Some glory in their birth, some in their skill,
Some in their wealth, some in their bodies' force,
Some in their garments though new-fangled ill;
Some in their hawks and hounds, some in their horse;
And every humour hath his adjunct pleasure,
Wherein it finds a joy above the rest:
But these particulars are not my measure,
All these I better in one general best.
Thy love is better than high birth to me,
Richer than wealth, prouder than garments' cost,
Of more delight than hawks and horses be;
And having thee, of all men's pride I boast:
Wretched in this alone, that thou mayst take
All this away, and me most wretched make.
William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Some glory in their birth, some in their skill,Some in their wealth, some in their
Thou shalt not stir one foot to seek a foe.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Thou shalt not stir one foot to seek a foe.
Vitamin C is the world's best natural antibiotic, antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine. This book's recurring emphasis on vitamin C might suggest that I am offering a song with only one verse. Not so. As English literature concentrates on Shakespeare, so orthomolecular (megavitamin) therapy concentrates on vitamin C. Let the greats be given their due. The importance of vitamin C cannot be overemphasised.Andrew W. Saul One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Andrew W. Saul: Vitamin C is the world's best natural antibiotic, antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine. This book's recurring
A collector recently bought at public auction, in London, for one hundred and fifty-seven guineas, an autograph of Shakespeare; but for nothing a school-boy can read Hamlet and can detect secrets of highest concernment yet unpublished therein.Ralph Waldo Emerson One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: A collector recently bought at public auction, in London, for one hundred and fifty-seven guineas,
As my good friend Will Shakespeare put it, the course of true love never did run smooth. You need not fear me, darling. I shall never again lift a hand to harm you. That would not bring me what I most desire, your love. Be forewarned, little one, that your life without me shall be a lonely one.


Farewell for now, sweet child.

All my love,

Lord Simon Baldevar, Earl of Lecarrow.
Trisha Baker One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Trisha Baker: As my good friend Will Shakespeare put it, the course of true love never did
One pain is cured by another. catch some new infection in your eye and the poison of the old one would die.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: One pain is cured by another. catch some new infection in your eye and the
In actual fact, however, the revolt of Ibsen and Shaw against the conventional nineteenth century drama could very well be described as a return to Shakespeare, as an attempt once again to present human beings in their historical and social setting and not, as playwrights since the Restoration had done, either as wholly private or as embodiments of the social manners of a tiny class. Shakespeare's plays, it is true, are not, in the Shavian sense, "dramas of thought," that is to say, not one of his characters is an intellectual: it is true, as Shaw says, that, when stripped of their wonderful diction, the philosophical and moral views expressed by his characters are commonplaces, but the number of people in any generation or society whose thoughts are not commonplace is very small indeed. On the other hand, there is hardly one of his plays which does not provide unending food for thought, if one cares to think about it.W. H. Auden One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By W. H. Auden: In actual fact, however, the revolt of Ibsen and Shaw against the conventional nineteenth century
That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain:
At least I am sure, it may be so in Denmark:
William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain: At least I am sure,
Let me confess that we two must be twain,
Although our undivided loves are one:
So shall those blots that do with me remain,
Without thy help, by me be borne alone.
In our two loves there is but one respect,
Though in our lives a separable spite,
Which though it alter not love's sole effect,
Yet doth it steal sweet hours from love's delight.
I may not evermore acknowledge thee,
Lest my bewailed guilt should do thee shame,
Nor thou with public kindness honour me,
Unless thou take that honour from thy name:
But do not so, I love thee in such sort,
As thou being mine, mine is thy good report.
William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Let me confess that we two must be twain,Although our undivided loves are one:So shall
I remember the astonishment I felt when I first read Shakespeare. I expected to receive a powerful esthetic pleasure, but having read, one after the other, works regarded as his best: "King Lear," "Romeo and Juliet," "Hamlet" and "Macbeth," not only did I feel no delight, but I felt an irresistible repulsion and tedium ... Shakespeare can not be recognized either as a great genius, or even as an average author ... far from being the height of perfection, [King Lear] is a very bad, carelessly composed production, ... can not evoke among us anything but aversion and weariness ... All his characters speak, not their own, but always one and the same Shakespearian, pretentious, and unnatural language ...Leo Tolstoy One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: I remember the astonishment I felt when I first read Shakespeare. I expected to receive
If one good deed in all my life I did,
I do repent it from my very soul.
William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: If one good deed in all my life I did, I do repent it from
Keep in mind that in the whole long tradition of storytelling, from Greek myths through Shakespeare through King Arthur and Robin Hood, this whole notion that you can't tell stories about certain characters because someone else owns them is a very modern one - and to my mind, a very strange one.Michael Montoure One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Michael Montoure: Keep in mind that in the whole long tradition of storytelling, from Greek myths through
When we reflect upon the works of William Shakespeare it is of course an amazement to consider that one man could have produced such a sumptuous, wise, varied, thrilling, ever-delighting body of work, but that is of course the hallmark of genius. Only one man had the circumstances and gifts to give us such incomparable works, and William Shakespeare of Stratford was unquestionably that man - whoever he was.Bill Bryson One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Bill Bryson: When we reflect upon the works of William Shakespeare it is of course an amazement
The city's legions of working men disagreed. They always had counted Harrison as one of their own, "Our Carter," even though he was a plantation-reared Kentucky man who had gone to Yale, spoke fluent French and German, and recited lengthy passages from Shakespeare.Erik Larson One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Erik Larson: The city's legions of working men disagreed. They always had counted Harrison as one of
What's the newest grief? Each minute tunes a new one.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: What's the newest grief? Each minute tunes a new one.
The solution which I am urging is to eradicate the fatal disconnection of subjects which kills the vitality of our modern curriculum. There is only one subject-matter for education, and that is LIfe in all its manifestations. Instead of this single unity, we offer children
Algebra, from which nothing follows; Geometry, from which nothing follows; Science, from which nothing follows; History, from which nothing follows; a Couple of Languages, never mastered; and lastly, most dreary of all, Literature, represented by plays of Shakespeare, with philological notes and short analyses of plot and character to be in substance committed to memory. Can such a list be said to represent Life, as it is known in the midst of living it? The best that can be said of it is, that it is a rapid table of contents which a deity might run over in his mind while he was thinking of creating a world, and has not yet determined how to put it together
Alfred North Whitehead One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Alfred North Whitehead: The solution which I am urging is to eradicate the fatal disconnection of subjects which
One fairer than my love? The all-seeing sun

A sad tale's best for winter. I have one of sprites and goblins.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: A sad tale's best for winter. I have one of sprites and goblins.
What do I miss, as a human being, if I have never heard of the Second Law of Thermodynamics? The answer is: Nothing. And what do I miss by not knowing Shakespeare? Unless I get my understanding from another source, I simply miss my life. Shall we tell our children that one thing is as good as another-- here a bit of knowledge of physics, and there a bit of knowledge of literature? If we do so, the sins of the fathers will be visited upon the children unto the third and fourth generation, because that normally is the time it takes from the birth of an idea to its full maturity when it fills the minds of a new generation and makes them think by it.

Science cannot produce ideas by which we could live.
Ernst F. Schumacher One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Ernst F. Schumacher: What do I miss, as a human being, if I have never heard of the
I knew a young lady of the last "romantic" generation who after some years of an enigmatic passion for a gentleman, whom she might quite easily have married at any moment, invented insuperable obstacles to their union, and ended by throwing herself one stormy night into a rather deep and rapid river from a high bank, almost a precipice, and so perished, entirely to satisfy her own caprice, and to be like Shakespeare's Ophelia. Indeed, if this precipice, a chosen and favourite spot of hers, had been less picturesque, if there had been a prosaic flat bank in its place, most likely the suicide would never have taken place.Fyodor Dostoyevsky One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I knew a young lady of the last "romantic" generation who after some years of
May one be pardoned and retain th' offense?William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: May one be pardoned and retain th' offense?
Dost thou not suspect my place? Dost thou not suspect my years? O that he were here to write me down an ass! But masters, remember that I am an ass. Though it be not written down, yet forget not that I am an ass. No, thou villain, thou art full of piety, as shall be proved upon thee by good witness. I am a wise fellow, and which is more, an officer, and which is more, a householder, and which is more, as pretty a piece of flesh as any is in Messina, and one that knows the law, go to ... and one that hath two gowns, and everything handsome about him. Bring him away. O that I had been writ down an ass!William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Dost thou not suspect my place? Dost thou not suspect my years? O that he
Ay, but hearken, sir; though the chameleon Love can feed on the air, I am one that am nourished by my victuals, and would fain have meat.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Ay, but hearken, sir; though the chameleon Love can feed on the air, I am
Your worm is your only emperor for diet: we fat all creatures else to fat us, and we fat ourselves for maggots: your fat king and your lean beggar is but variable service, two dishes, but to one table: that's the end.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Your worm is your only emperor for diet: we fat all creatures else to fat
During the Government's recent overhaul of GCSEs, I was asked to join a consultative group advising on the English Literature syllabus. It quickly became clear that the minister wanted to prescribe two Shakespeare plays for every 16-year-old in the land. I argued, to the contrary, that there should be one Shakespeare play and one play by anybody except Shakespeare. It cannot be in Shakespeare's interest for teenagers to associate him with compulsion, for his plays and his alone to have the dreaded status of set books.Jonathan Bate One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Jonathan Bate: During the Government's recent overhaul of GCSEs, I was asked to join a consultative group
No one pretends that Shakespeare was (divinely) inspired, and yet all the writers of the books of the Old Testament put together, could not have produced Hamlet.Robert G. Ingersoll One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Robert G. Ingersoll: No one pretends that Shakespeare was (divinely) inspired, and yet all the writers of the

The love of wicked men converts to fear, that fear to hate, and hate turns one or both to worthy danger and deserved death.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: The love of wicked men converts to fear, that fear to hate, and hate turns
One of the strangest events, however, happened in the first year of Elizabeth (1558), when dyed Sir Thomas Cheney, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, of whom it is reported for a certain, that his pulse did beat more than three quarters of an hour after he was dead, as strongly as if he had been still alive.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: One of the strangest events, however, happened in the first year of Elizabeth (1558), when
LEONATO O, she tore the letter into a thousand half-pence; railed at herself, that she should be so immodest to write to one that she knew would flout her. 'I measure him,' says she, 'by my own spirit; for I should flout him, if he writ to me; yea, though I love him, I should.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: LEONATO O, she tore the letter into a thousand half-pence; railed at herself, that she

With these shreds They vented their complainings, which being answered And a petition granted them, a strange one, To break the heart of generosity, And make bold power look pale, they threw their caps As they would hang them on the horns o' th' moon, Shouting their emulation.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: With these shreds They vented their complainings, which being answered And a petition granted them,
I desire you in friendship, and I will one way or other make you amends.William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: I desire you in friendship, and I will one way or other make you amends.
Out, damned spot! out, I say! - One, two; why, then 'tis time to do't. - Hell is murky! - Fie, my lord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account? - Yet who would have thought the old man to have so much blood in him? The thane of Fife had a wife; where is she now? - What, will these hands ne'er be clean? - No more o'that, my lord, no more o'that: you mar all with this starting. Here's the smell of the blood still: all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh, oh, oh!William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: Out, damned spot! out, I say! - One, two; why, then 'tis time to do't.
Nothing is sillier than this charge of plagiarism. There is no sixth commandment in art. The poet dare help himself wherever he lists, wherever he finds material suited to his work. He may even appropriate entire columns with their carved capitals, if the temple he thus supports be a beautiful one. Goethe understood this very well, and so did Shakespeare before him.Heinrich Heine One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Heinrich Heine: Nothing is sillier than this charge of plagiarism. There is no sixth commandment in art.
Right at this moment, I only want silence. I believe that the end of life is silence in the love people have for you. I've actually been running through what people have said about the end. Religion says that the end is one thing, because it serves their purpose. But great thinkers alike haven't always agreed. Shakespeare knew how to say it better than anyone else. Hamlet says 'The rest is silence.' And when you think of the noises of everyday life, you realize how particularly desirable that is. Silence.Vincent Price One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Vincent Price: Right at this moment, I only want silence. I believe that the end of life
That skull had a tongue in it, and could sing once: how the knave jowls it to the ground, as if it were Cain's jaw-bone, that did the first murder! It might be the pate of a politician, which this ass now o'er-reaches; one that would circumvent God, might it not?William Shakespeare One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By William Shakespeare: That skull had a tongue in it, and could sing once: how the knave jowls

( ... )we all recognize a likeness of Shakespeare the instant we see one, and yet we don't really know what he looked like. It is like this with nearly every aspect of his life and character: He is at once the best known and least known of figures.Bill Bryson One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Bill Bryson: ( ... )we all recognize a likeness of Shakespeare the instant we see one, and
One of the most painful parts of teaching mathematics is seeing students damaged by the cult of the genius. The genius cult tells students it's not worth doing mathematics unless you're the best at mathematics, because those special few are the only ones whose contributions matter. We don't treat any other subject that way! I've never heard a student say, "I like Hamlet, but I don't really belong in AP English - that kid who sits in the front row knows all the plays, and he started reading Shakespeare when he was nine!" Athletes don't quit their sport just because one of their teammates outshines them. And yet I see promising young mathematicians quit every year, even though they love mathematics, because someone in their range of vision was "ahead" of them.Jordan Ellenberg One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Jordan Ellenberg: One of the most painful parts of teaching mathematics is seeing students damaged by the
A bookseller," said Grandfather, "is the link between mind and mind, the feeder of the hungry, very often the binder up of wounds. There he sits, your bookseller, surrounded by a thousand minds all done up neatly in cardboard cases; beautiful minds, courageous minds, strong minds, wise minds, all sorts and conditions. There come into him other minds, hungry for beauty, for knowledge, for truth, for love, and to the best of his ability he satisfies them all ... Yes ... It's a great vocation ... Moreover his life is one of wide horizons. He deals in the stuff of eternity and there's no death in a bookseller's shop. Plato and Jane Austen and Keats sit side by side behind his back, Shakespeare is on his right hand and Shelley on his left.Elizabeth Goudge One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Elizabeth Goudge: A bookseller," said Grandfather, "is the link between mind and mind, the feeder of the

Shakespeare pulls on us and demands the best of us. You never successfully wrestle one of his plays to the ground and say, 'See? That's It!'Jack O'Brien One Of Shakespeare's Best Sayings By Jack O'Brien: Shakespeare pulls on us and demands the best of us. You never successfully wrestle one
