4. "The bookseller handed me the book and winked."Have a good look at it, little dumpling. I don't want you coming back to me saying I've switched it, eh?""I trust you," I said."Stuff and nonsense. The last guy who said that to me (a tourist who was convinced that Hemingway had invented the fabada stew during the San Fermín bull run) bought a copy of Hamlet signed by Shakespeare in ballpoint, imagine that.

Author: Dennis Haysbert
8. "Carpe DiemBy Edna StewartShakespeare, Robert Frost, Walt Whitman did it, why can't I?The words of Horace, his laconic phrase. Does it amuse me or frighten me?Does it rub salt in an old wound? Horace, Shakespeare, Robert Frost and Walt Whitman my loves,we've all had a taste of the devils carpe of forbidden food. My belly is full of mourning over life mishaps of should have's, missed pleasure, and why was I ever born?The leaf falls from the trees from which it was born in and cascade down like a feather that tumbles and toil in the wind.One gush! It blows away. It's trampled, raked, burned and finally turns to ashes which fades away like the leaves of grass.Did Horace get it right? Trust in nothing?The shortness of Life is seventy years, Robert Frost and Whitman bared more, but Shakespeare did not.Butterflies of Curiosities allures me more.Man is mortal, the fruit is ripe. Seize more my darling! Enjoy the day."

9. "Draga Relu, epoca pe care-o traim e suficient s-o privesti ca spectator pentru a trage concluzii pentru toate vremurile. Eu am devenit imun la orice, la fostele credinte si la orice credinta viitoare. Mai cred poate în inteligenta si-n focul de artificii al spiritului. „Realitate" nu exista decît în suferinta, dar moartea o anuleaza si pe ea, asa încît în cele din urma nimic n-are nicio consistenta. Eu citesc foarte mult, în special Shakespeare si marii poeti englezi. în afara de muzica si poezie, totul e minciuna sau vulgaritate. Nu stiu daca pe acolo gasesti carti. Ti-as trimite ceva, dar pe posta nu se poate înca. Pe data ceva fi posibil, o sa fac sa-ti parvina. Dintre prietenii de la Bucuresti mi-e dor de Tutea. L-ai mai vazut?"
Author: Emil Cioran

Author: Hayley Atwell
13. "And I just think that to introduce an unknown Shakespeare is thrilling, too - not to do Hamlet or Romeo and Juliet, to do the richer Shakespeare. People will come to this and not know the story."
Author: Julie Taymor
14. "As for my family, Ren was Ren and his family was his family and mine were who they were and usually this would be a Romeo and Juliet type of scenario. But I wasn't big on Shakespeare so my family was also just going to have to deal."
Author: Kristen Ashley

17. "Why do you want to do this?" he asked curiously. "Why is this woman so important to you?"Saint-Germain blinked in surprise. "Have you ever loved anyone?" he asked."Yes," Tamnuz said cautiously, "I had a consort once, Inanna...""But did you love her? Truly love her?"The Green Man remained silent."Did she mean more to you than life itself?" Saint-Germain persisted."They do not love that do not show their love," Shakespeare murmured very softly.The French immortal stepped closer to the Elder. "I love my Jeanne," he said simply. "I must go to her.""Even though it will cost you everything?" Tamnuz persisted, as if the idea was incomprehensible."Yes. Without Joan, everything I have is worthless.""Even your immortality?""Especially my immortality." Gone were the banter and the jokes. This was a Saint-Germain whom neither Shakespeare nor Palamedes had ever seen before. "I love her," he said,"
Author: Michael Scott

Author: Sangu Mandanna
