Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! Beware Macduff,
Beware the Thane of Fife. Dismiss me. Enough. [...]
Be bloody, bold, and resolute: laugh to scorn
The power of man, for none of womas born
Shall harm Macbeth. [...]
Be lion-mettled, proud, and take no care
Who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are.
Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until
Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill
Shall come against him.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
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 anf fury,
A quart of ale is a dish for a king.BeerWilliam Shakespeare
Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but love.LoveWilliam Shakespeare in Love's Labour's Lost

Never play with the feelings of others, because you may win the game, but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for a life time.William Shakespeare
For women are as Roses, whose fairr flowre,
Being once displaid, doth fall that verie howre.
Alacke, there lies more perill in thine eye,
Then twenty of their swords, looke thou but sweete,
And I am proofe against their enmity.
My life were better ended by their hate,
Then death proroged wanting of thy Love.
I would there were no age betweene ten and three and twenty, or that youth would sleep out the rest: for there is nothing (in the betweene) but getting wenches with childe, wronging the Auncientry, stealing, fighting, hearke you now.YouthWilliam Shakespeare (Ein Wintermärchen)
The rarer action is in virtue than in vengeance.Forgiveness & Mercy, RevengeWilliam Shakespeare in Der Sturm
There are more things in Heaven and Earth
Than are dream't of in your Philosophy
Life's a play written by an idiot full of laughter and fury, signifying nothing.LifeWilliam Shakespeare
It was the Nightingale, and not the LarkeWilliam Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet
For there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.Thinking, Good and EvilWilliam Shakespeare in Hamlet
