He that dies pays all debts

But oh, how bitter a thing it is, to look into happiness through another man’s eyes.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be

How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child!

Parting is such sweet sorrow

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.

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

An overflow of good converts to bad.

And oftentimes excusing of a fault doth make the fault the worse by the excuse.

Why, then the world’s mine oyster

Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Boldness be my friend.

Brevity is the soul of wit.
