Overview

Shakespeare is without doubt the most quoted writer in English. His plays and poems comprise an inexhaustible source of memorable and often profound thoughts beautifully and concisely expressed. This remarkably affordable volume presents over 400 quotations conveniently arranged by topic: love, marriage, conduct and morality, truth, beauty, time, death, music, and more.
Included are such timeless observations as: -All that glitters is not gold, - -Brevity is the soul of wit, - -How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is/ To have a thankless child-; -While you live, tell truth and shame the devil -; -The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream, - and many more. Romantic thoughts receive a particularly rich treatment; extensive selections on the subject of love include quotes from the plays (-The course of true love never did run smooth-; -Speak low if you speak love-) and sonnets (-For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings, / That then I scorn to change my state with kings-). Each quote bears a complete citation.
Ideal for writers, speakers, students of literature, and any lover of Shakespeare's works, this inexpensive treasury lends itself admirably to a virtually endless number of uses, from casual browsing to designing personal greeting cards.
