Shakespearian Fun

  A Few Shakesperian Quotes:

(The first three are from As You Like It, the last from Julius Caesar)

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

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.

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

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

Now here’s the fun part ….some Shakespearian insults (in Elizabethan English)

Thou frothy dizzy-eyed contriver!

Thou base muddy-mottled punk!

Thou wayward beetle-headed                  ratsbane!

Thou unwholesome ill-bred babbling gossip!

Thou tottering plume-plucked miscreant!  

Now, go ahead, amaze your friends and enemies…..
