William Shakespeare's birthday is celebrated on April 23, so I just want to wish the Bard a Happy Birthday! We have become quite good friends over the years as I have studied and watched most of his plays and read most of his poetry. In tribute to this most famous writer I would like to share a few quotes which have particularly stood out to me lately!
"How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?" - Iago from Othello
"If music be the food of love, play on, and give me excess of it..." - Duke Orsino from Twelfth Night
"Of all the men alive I never yet beheld that special face which I could fancy more than any other." - Bianca from Taming of the Shrew
"If I be waspish, best beware my sting." - Kate from Taming of the Shrew
"I'd rather hear a dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me." - Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing
