"Get thee to a nunnery!" -Hamlet. It's got a nice ring to it, and it's fun to shout at friends.
Sigh no more ladies, sigh no more
men were deceivers ever
one foot at sea, and one on land
so sigh no more
and let them go
and be you blithe and bonny
and turn your woe
into cries of hey nonny nonny..
I wrote this quote as I remembered it, but just looked it up and I didn't get it quite right -- I will leave it though as a tribute to a great writer whose words stick in the heads of so many people (even if we don't get them quite right!). This is from "Much Ado About Nothing," love his comedies.
Whoa! Those lines are similar to "Sigh No More" by Mumford and Sons. I know they've been inspired by John Steinbeck but I never made the connection to Shakespeare before. Very cool!
I was in my college literature class and the professor asked the same thing. He went from every student in the class and all the ones I remembered were taken! When he came to me, I sighed and pulled out the quote my friends thought was so funny back in high school.
"Hand me my long sword, Ho!"
-Romeo and Juliet
"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".
This quote I love from As You Like It, I remember from school and its always stuck with me!
"Who is it that can tell me who I am? King Lear
By the way, this is how you spell Shakespeare.
"In sooth, I know not what makes me so sad,
It wearies me; you say it wearies you,
But how I caught it, found it, or came by it,
What stuff 'tis made of, whereof it is born,
I am to learn."
The Merchant of Venice Act I Scene I lines 1 to 5
It was the first Shakespearean play that I ever studied, and for some reason, these words just stuck with me.
