Five Quotes:

1. It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.

2, All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.

3. The highest result of education is tolerance.

4. It is hard to interest those who have everything in those who have nothing.

5. Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.

10 Famous William Shakespeare Quotes

To be, or not to be: that is the question.
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.
If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
‘Tis better to be brief than tedious.
If music be the food of love, play on.
Love is a smoke and is made with the fume of sighs.
Love sought is good, but giv’n unsought is better.
The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones.

Sonnet 18

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:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But 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.
