THE WISDOM OF SHAKESPEARE  
“This above all, to thine own self be true.”
Hamlet
 
The playwright Ben Jonson said William Shakespeare was not “of an age but for all time.” Certainly, the man who penned such immortal works as Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, Much Ado About Nothing, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night delved into the human experience as no other writer before or since. His thoughts on love, friendship, power, politics, injustice, education, humanity, life, death, and grief are as pertinent today as those of any contemporary artist. Here in this invaluable collection are 250 ideas and quotations from the man who stands at the center of Western literature and continues to influence every generation—an important, easy-to-use reference for both the scholar and the enthusiast.
