Huzzah, lords and ladies! William Shakespeare was born in April 1564, so this is the perfect time to celebrate all the wonderful plays and poems he wrote. He also invented many words we still use today: bedazzled, dishearten, eventful, manager, and eyeball are just a few. In honor of Will’s birthday, Writer’s Relief has created a list of our favorite lines from Shakespeare—including one very unique stage direction. So peruse this list with your eyeballs and prepare to be bedazzled!

14 Favorite Quotes From Shakespeare

Hell is empty and all the devils are here.

            The Tempest (Act I, Scene 2)

 

Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

            Julius Caesar (Act I, Scene 2)

 

As you from crimes would pardoned be,
Let your indulgence set me free.

            The Tempest (Act V, Scene 1)

 

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety.

            Antony and Cleopatra (Act II, Scene 2)

 

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

            Hamlet (Act I, Scene 3)

 

And though she be but little, she is fierce.

            A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act III, Scene 2)

 

If I be waspish, best beware of my sting.

The Taming of the Shrew (Act II, Scene 1)

 

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is wing’d Cupid painted blind.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act I, Scene 1)

 

There’s no more faith in thee than in a stewed prune.
            Henry IV (Act III, Scene 3)

 

’Sblood, you starveling, you elf-skin, you dried neat’s tongue, you bull’s pizzle, you stockfish! O, for breath to utter what is like thee! You tailor’s-yard, you sheath, you bowcase, you vile standing tuck—

            Henry IV (Act II, Scene 4)

 

I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest.

            Much Ado About Nothing (Act IV, Scene 1)

 

Lord, what fool these mortals be.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act III, Scene 2)

 

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.

As You Like It (Act V, Scene 1)
