Thoughts for Thursday

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is quotes by my buddy, Shakespeare!

"When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry."

"A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
But we were burdened with like weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain."

"All is well that ends well."
"Love goes toward love as schoolboys from their books,
But love from love, toward school with heavy looks."
"What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason!
how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how
express and admirable! in action how like an angel!
in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the
world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me,
what is this quintessence of dust?"

What's your favorite Shakespeare quote? Play? 


  1. Awesome quotes. And Wow! You've gone all out for your blog tour.

  2. I have always loved the second one on the list.

  3. Hmmm. I like the quotes. I'm not sure what my favourite quote would be because I haven't read that much Shakespeare. However, I do love Hamlet. So it would probably have to be Hamlet as my favourite play.

  4. I like "A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."
