There are a lot of good quotes from the recent Shakespeare Mafia game.

What? No love for Yorick? Alas!





Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow
of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath
borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how
abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at
it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know
not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your
gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment,
that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one
now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen?
Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let
her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must
come; make her laugh at that.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Favorite Shakespeare Quote
I'm posting a few I like.

"The empty vessel makes the loudest sound."

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once."

"To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man."

"Hell is empty and all the devils are here."

Even though he ripped this one off...
"A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool."

RE: Favorite Shakespeare Quote
"Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgement"
That speech is always a classic. Good ol' blowhard Polonius. There's other great bits in Hamlet too, of course.

Just about anything from Lear is amazing. From "Nothing will come of nothing" in I.i right on to V.iii and the crushingly poignant old King's last - "Thou'lt come no more; Never, never, never, never, never!"

I mean, how's that for the
"Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.", as As You Like It II.vii might put it...

And, of course - Titus Andronicus IV.ii has this:
DEMETRIUS: Villain, what hast thou done?
AARON: That which thou canst not undo.
CHIRON: Thou hast undone our mother.
AARON: Villain, I have done thy mother.

Oooooh yo mama! Oh no he di'in't!

... this is my signature!

"It lacks of twelve"

It's from Hamlet as well. I just think it's a cool phrase that's amusing to use.

"I am sure care’s an enemy to life."
-- Sir Toby Belch, Twelfth Night (Act 1, Scene 3)


"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing."
-- Macbeth (Act 5, Scene 5)
