William Shakespeare, being not only the epitome of wisdom and sophistication but was also the greatest writer of English of all times. He intrigued people to his plays and his writings.
He spoke of life and death, love and hatred , beauty and wisdom . His plays portrayed true reflection of the world then and even now. His words truly ignites the soul of one , And inspires thy.

Let me put forward –


1. Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

The character of one can be understood fairly by their generousity . Shakespeare, quoted this to explain that One should love everyone, respect everyone and should be humble .
But when it comes to trust , one should demarcate those who could be trusted in real , as Trust is something so pious that it makes the foundation of the modern day relationships.
And at the end , One should never do wrong to anyone because then the Concept of karma acts up.
A wrong done to other ends up into a wrong done to you .

Be generous, Be humble.

2. There is Nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so

The concept of perspective , is being depicted here. A good or bad , is highly subjective. But, One should not presume a thing as bad or good merely depending upon his thoughts because what may seem bad at first , maybe good .
This the difference between positivity and negativity.

3. Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; and therefore is winged cupid painted blind

Love is the most pious feeling ever. Its a feeling because it is something that can be felt in heart not depending upon mere looks.
Well, as of today, its shifting to the physical appearance than the heart of the other person. However is physical appearance alone enough to make somebody fall in love?
Looks fade , Golden heart does not.
Cupid , The god of love , is blindfolded just to portray that love is not based on mere physical appearance.
As A book can never be judged by its cover , So does the beauty.

4. To thine own self be true.

People do always suggest us to follow our heart , Do what you feel like .

But,  more often we are influenced by our company ,  And rather than listening to own , We tend to mould ourselves into what we are not and follow the wrong while knowing the right.
Shakespeare, by this saying Wants every individual to do whatever they think is best for them.

Bring the best in YOU by simply Following You.

5. It is not in stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

Some people belive that destiny is defined in lines by the supreme personality of godhead . Also, one gets what is destined for them .
But, the abyss is that destiny is something that levies in your control. You are the creator of your own destiny .
To make or To destroy , You decide.

6. Be great in act , as you have been in thought.

It happens sometime , that you come up with brilliant idea but only the idea, which you fail to put into action.
Shakespeare here relates to the fact that , Only idea cannot make you successful, You need to initiate it to comply with your set standards.
Think. Initiate. Determine. Work-Hard. Success.


7. Give every man thy ear but few thy voice.

Lending your ear, Is always good to do. One should be a good listener and should be always ready to listen to what others need to say , But should speak less of themselves .
By this , one gets to know whether or not should they disclose their real identity and their secrets to the person they are listening to.

8. One may smile, and smile and be a villain

We are surrounded by 2 types of people – negative and positive.
The positive ones are there for you always , to support, motivate and promote you . They are the backbone to your success.
But then there are few negative souls , with ill intentions . Everyone who smiles in your face when you fail, is not your friend. The envious nature of them does not want one to achieve success because of the insecurity that binds them.
You need to follow your path.
Standout. Stay positive. Dream.

9. What’s in name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

The significance of a name is just to define one, to make it easy to distinguish . By changing the name , the characteristics that one holds would not change. One falls in love with person not with the name .
Hence, this quotes gives reference of a rose citing that even though , if we call rose as something else it would still smell the same – Sweet.

10. The course of true love never did run smooth.

“Happy Ending” Or “Lived Happily ever after” isn’t what happens in real life as they do in stories or fairy tales. For two people to have a perfect love life , it requires a lot of struggle, patience, compromises , trust.
It happen sometimes that people break apart , because of the conflicts, misunderstandings and hence pair up after everything is sorted.
Relationships does not run as smooth as fairy tales , but if its true love,  it will find its way to work.
