My favourite Shakespeare Quotes

In all honesty people, I’m feeling rather down. I’ve just come home tom my local football club’s play-off semi-final. Obviously we lost. I don’t feel like getting into it all, but I’ll assure you, it was and is very emotional for me. Again, I will tell you lot about it later.

Sometimes I need cheering up – like everyone else – and at this moment, I don’t want any human comfort contact. I’m no rude person, but at the moment people are possibly getting hurt as they approach me. Well Non-verbaly speaking.

At times at these I just browse through one of my favourite poets and writers: William Shakespeare. Trying to seek motivation, inspiration or just to perk me up a bit. Here are my top shakespeare quotes:

No matter where; of comfort no man speak: Let’s talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs; Make dust our paper and with rainy eyes Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth, Let’s choose executors and talk of wills: And yet not so, for what can we bequeath Save our deposed bodies to the ground? – Richard II

Let me be that I am and seek not to alter me. – Much Ado About Nothing

And since you know you cannot see yourself, so well as by reflection, I, your glass, will modestly discover to yourself, that of yourself which you yet know not of.” – Julius Caesar

Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; – Henry V

“But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve
For daws to peck at: I am not what I am.” – Othello 

“Good night, good night! Parting is such a sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow” 

“If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches and poor men’s cottages princes’ palaces.” – the Merchant of Venice  

“An’ can you by no drift of conference
Get from him why he puts on this confusion,
Grating so harshly all his days of quiet
With turbulent and dangerous lunacy?” – Hamlet 

“Live a little; comfort a little; cheer thyself a little” – As you like it.

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” – Merchant of Venice. 

O, pardon! since a crooked figure may
Attest in little place a million;
And let us, ciphers to this great accompt,
On your imaginary forces work. – Henry V

“All the world’s a stage, 
And all the men and women merely players; 
They have their exits and their entrances; 
And one man in his time plays many parts, 
His acts being seven ages.” – As you like it

Come what come may, time and the hour runs through the roughest day – Macbeth

“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?” William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice 

“More and men’s end mark’d than their lives before: The setting sun, and music af the close,
As the last taste of sweets, is sweetest last,
Writ in remembrance more than things long past” – Richard II
