Creative Quotations from . . .
William Shakespeare
(1564-1616) born on
Apr 23
English dramatist, poet. He is considered the greatest writer in any language for his 154 sonnets and 37 plays, e.g., "Hamlet," 1600.
Beauty itself doth of itself persuade
The eyes of men without an orator.

For greatest scandal waits on greatest state.
And now this pale swan in her watery nest
Begins the sad dirge of her certain ending.
Time's glory is to calm contending kings,
To unmask falsehood and bring truth to light.
And so to publish Tarquin's foul offence:
Which being done with speedy diligence,
The Romans plausibly did give consent
To Tarquin's everlasting banishment.
