William Shakespeare Quotes and Sayings

We never get enough of famous quotes by Shakespeare and I also compiled some which I have recently moved to a brand new website..

But since you came here, this is my favorite Shakespeare quote:

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

From the wikipedia.
William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616)[b] was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist.[13] He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays,[c] 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.[14]

Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.
