Quote
Hamlet
To be, or not to be, that is the question
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark
To thine own self be true
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so
Romeo & Juliet
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Parting is such sweet sorrow
A plague on both your houses
Richard III
Now is the winter of our discontent
My kingdom for a horse
Macbeth
Something wicked this way comes
Out, damn'd spot!
Sonnet 18
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day
Julius Caesar
Beware the ides of March
Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears
The Merchant of Venice
All that glisters is not gold
King Henry VI
The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers
Give the devil his due
The Tempest
We are such stuff as dreams are made on
As You Like It
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players

I was surprised at the low numbers for the King Henry quotes. I know they're not the most popular plays but I thought those were pretty popular quotes. Great quiz!

"Is there a criminal lawyer in this town?" "We think so, but we haven't been able to prove it." -- definitely not Shakespeare

Dammit when "rotting" didn't work I tried sick and poisoned and dying and dead and everything I could think of, but it was "rotten". Stupid, stupid, stupid. Including that one, I missed four. Great quiz!

The only reason i knew that one is from an Eagles song from their Hell Freezes Over album called "Get Over It." The line is "...old Billy was right...let's kill all the lawyers...kill 'em tonight." I never knew who the heck Old Billy was...turns out "Old Billy" is Billy Shakespere. Weird.

It may seem good advice, but the character that speaks it is NOT a hero. It's not Shakespeare's actual sentiment.

Could've sworn I typed "glitters". Was credited with a correct answer. I feel like that should be wrong. If not for scanning the comments section, I would never have realized it should have been "glisters". I dunno, maybe I made a happy mistake and mistyped "glitters" as "glisters".

Great quiz, I surprised myself getting 18/20 but many of these quotes although coined by Shakespeare have become sayings. I missed the "kill the lawyers" and missed 'Dreams' although I have heard it often enough.

I feel the same about "All the world's a stage..." from Rush's song Limelight. Along those lines, one of my favorite lyrics of theirs, which i always thought was Shakespearian from "Closer to the Heart" ... "And the men who hold high places, must be the ones who start, to mold a new reality, closer to the heart."

Since Henry VI was English, wouldn't he have said: "... Let's kill all the Solicitors" or "Let's kill all the Barristers." ?

Whilst understandable, 'glitter' should probably not be allowed as a type-in, in a quotations quiz, where the idea is to get the quote right. I know glister is an archaic word for glitter, but it's still the only word that should be acceptable as the answer.
