Five Shakespearean Quotes for Everyday




William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) is regarded as the best playwright and poet in the English Literature. He is known as the God of Literature. Even though his works are centuries old but they are widely read and acknowledged. The secret behind this is simple. They seem to resonate with the people even today in this modern world. We have accumulated Top Five Quotes of Shakespeare which even a layman can relate to.

 

If music be the food of love, play on.

 

This is from his famous play Twelfth Night in which the Duke Orsino is badly besotted with Countess Olivia. All he wants is for the music to continue playing so that his pang of love can be soothed. This related with every man and woman who has faced with unrequited one-sided love. We see several Romeos listening to anguish loud or soothing music for their Juliets.

 

Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

 

Ah! The sweet pleasure of love at first sight. This is taken from his tragic play Romeo and Juliet. Romeo is ensnared by the beauty of Juliet and falls madly in love with her. This time the love even though is reciprocated but the families have bad blood between them and thus, leads to their ordeal. But, in spite of that the pleasure of falling in love for the first time is a universal feeling and hence, everyone can relate to it.

 

All that glitters is not gold.

 

This is another one of such lines which has been widely popular and parents are more prone to use them to instill some sense into their children. This is quoted in Merchant of Venice. This phrase is spoken by Morocco to Portia whom he wants to marry. This quote is to raise awareness that not everything which looks good will be good so, it's best to look beyond the surface and look beneath the shallow exterior both literally and figuratively.

 

Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 

This is also one of the famous lines from the play All's Well That Ends Well. This advice is given by a mother Countess of Russillon to her son Bertram who is leaving after the death of his father. This is an apt advice as it is teaching him that he should be considerate towards everyone and yet trust only a few people. It is important that in spite of our fair dealings and friendly behavior we should not trust blindly as we do not know what goes in someone's mind. Also, it ponders on that we should refrain from hurting others whatever the reason maybe. If only people could take this advice to their hearts, it will transform the world into a  better place.

 

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

 

This line is from Julius Caesar and is spoken by Cassius to convince Brutus that Julius Caesar should not become the monarch. Even thought the context in simple yet, the line resonates to a common man on several different levels. It is one of the motivational quotes that is teaching us that destiny lies within us and the circumstances are not works of some cosmic forces but are the results of our very decisions. So, therefore it is important to take into account our actions and bear responsibility towards them.

 

Hope that you will carry the messages within you and I would like to say farewell with my favorite quote Sit by my side, and let the world slip: we shall ne'er be younger.
