Those are goodies from a true poet : ) HERE ARE MORE SHAKESPEARE QUOTES I LIKE: "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.

That which we call a rose By any other word would smell as sweet." --From Romeo and Juliet My favorite Hamlet quote: "My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go." --From Hamlet

Spiritual quotes~ "Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier.

What we really are consists in what God knows us to be." - St. John Berchmans In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human successes, but on how well we have loved. - Saint John of the Cross MY FAVE: "There is no labor where one loves, or if there is, the labor itself is loved." - St Augustine
