William Shakespeare


Alas! certainty dare not come to unveil

His life genuine.

The Man universal abides in mystery’s

Stupendous ruin.

But the huge oblivion sadly fails to fell

His action-tree.

The ocean-pride of English souls ever

In him we see.

Excerpt from Philosopher-Thinkers: The Power-Towers Of The Mind And Poet-Seers: The Fragrance-Hours Of The Heart In The West by Sri Chinmoy.


Quotes by Shakespeare

 “To be or not to be, –that is the question:–
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?”

From: Hamlet


“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.”

–From As You Like It (II, vii, 139-143)


“If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.”

–From Twelfth Night (I, i,1-3)


“To sleep, perchance to dream-
ay, there’s the rub.”

–From Hamlet(III, i, 65-68)
