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.
Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.
Testing out some backgrounds.
To run away from trouble is a form of cowardice and, while it is true that the suicide braves death, he does it not for some noble object but to escape some ill.
All men whilst they are awake are in one common world: but each of them, when he is asleep, is in a world of his own.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair through fear alone
The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.
Let's change the transparency!
There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead.
Is this a dagger which I see before me, This handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee. I have thee not, and yet I see thee still. Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible To feeling as to sight? Or art thou but A dagger of the mind, a false creation, Proceeding from the heat-oppressèd brain?
