William Shakespeare quotes

You see? The consumptives plot against me. "Will Shakespeare has a play, let us go and cough through it."

[to Rosaline] Are you to be my muse?

It is not a comedy I'm writing now.

Love knows nothing of rank or river bank.

Love denied blights the soul we owe to God.

A broad river divides my lovers: family, duty, fate. As unchangeable as nature.

[to Viola, as they part] You will never age for me, nor fade, nor die.

[last lines] My story starts at sea... a perilous voyage to an unknown land... a shipwreck... the wild waters roar and heave... the brave vessel is dashed all to pieces, and all the helpless souls within her drowned... all save one... a lady... whose soul is greater than the ocean... and her spirit stronger than the sea's embrace... not for her a watery end, but a new life beginning on a stranger shore. It will be a love story... for she will be my heroine for all time. And her name... Viola.

I'm fortune's fool!
