Pretty Much Settled in
Pretty Much Settled in
I was one of those weird kids who actually enjoyed learning Shakespeare in high school, well except for King Lear and in its defence, I was forced to watch an incredibly poorly done movie version of it where the lead actor sounded like he had a mouth full of spit when he talked.
Because of this, I randomly think of Shakespeare quotes, which lead me to creating this thread. Your quote doesn't have to be from Shakespeare; but I'd like quotes from books and or poems you find interesting, or identify with.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


Macbeth - William Shakespeare


To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there's the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,


Hamlet - Shakespeare


There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Hamlet - Shakespeare

This piece comes from Maya Angelou's poem STILL I RISE.

"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise."


This is from Robert Frost's poem THE ROAD NOT TAKEN.

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

From the book WALDEN by Henry David Thoreau.

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself,
than be crowded on a velvet cushion."
