    Words and Phrases Popularized by the Writings of One William Shakespeare

    Play fast and loose.

    Sample sentence: Playing fast and loose with the meaning of moderate has entertained the forum in weeks past.
    ~ Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference ~

    Elm, he do brood. And Oak, he do hate. But the Willow-man goes walking, If you stays out late.

    A better example would be: Harsh playing fast and loose with the meaning of the word moderation has caused the forum much apoplexy in weeks past.

    More sinned against than sinning.

    Sample sentence: More sinned against than sinning is a phrase that can never be applied to sledger's posting history.

    To bee or not to bee.

    Sample sentence: The middle-aged worker bee didn't wanna be a bee anymore' he questioned himself, "To bee or not to bee".
    Symmetry is beauty, beauty is truth. Breaking symmetry means breaking truth.

    Hamlet:

    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? To die: to sleep;
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
    Must give us pause: there’s the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life;
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
    The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
    The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
    The insolence of office and the spurns
    That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his quietus make
    With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
    No traveller returns, puzzles the will
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great pith and moment
    With this regard their currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of action.—Soft you now!
    The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
    Be all my sins remember’d.

    Ophelia:

    Ok.

    King Lear is my favorite piece of literature and Lears delusion about how he is “more sinned against than sinning” is so good, and perceptive, about human nature.

    That, and the whole “tomorrow, and tomorrow” speech in Macbeth. So good.

    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.

    Not in the same league as Dawood’s tribute to Ricky Ponting
