Birthday Quotes

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
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.

That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man,If with his tongue he cannot win a woman.

The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils.

Life is a tale told by an idiot -- full of sound and fury, signifying nWhen a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry over nothing.

Better three hours too soon than a minute too late

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

Journeys end in lovers meeting.
