A Quote by William Shakespeare

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this and all is mended,
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions have appeared,
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream.

Why, let the strucken deer go weep,
     The hart ungalled play.
For some must watch, while some must sleep;
      Thus runs the world away.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on romeo and juliet, william shakespeare, and juliet

And when I shall die,
take him and cut him up in little stars,
and he will make the face of heaven so fine
that all the world will fall in love with night
and pay no worship to the garish sun.
