It is an attitude, not a routine.

His acts being seven ages.

Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.

And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school.

Whether you will or no.

I will instruct my sorrows to be proud;
for grief is proud and makes his owner stoop.

Two lovely berries moulded on one stem;
So, with two seeming bodies, but one heart.

William Shakespeare

Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head.

William Shakespeare

Then, must you speak
Of one that loved not wisely but too well.

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare

This England never did, nor never shall,
Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror.

William Shakespeare

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?

All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.

A proper view of death,
You're asked to blow each light, each year,
Out with your own breath.

Gentlemen, you are now about to embark on a course of studies which will occupy you for two years. Together, they form a noble adventure. But I would like to remind you of an important point. Nothing that you will learn in the course of your studies will be of the slightest possible use to you in after life, save only this, that if you work hard and intelligently you should be able to detect when a man is talking rot, and that, in my view, is the main, if not the sole, purpose of education.

John Sparrow

If men had to have babies they would only ever have one each.
Diana Spencer

My God. What's happened?

Adlai Stevenson

Marriage is one long conversation, chequered by disputes.
