All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
每個人皆扮演許多角色，this is from Act II of As you like it, 皆大歡喜的第二幕
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.’ 有些人天生偉大、有些人是努力掙來、有些人是別人塞給他們的
(Twelfth Night, Act 2, Scene 5)
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.’
(Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2) 沒有事情是好的或壞的，是想法使它如此。
‘We have seen better days.’ 今非昔比 光彩不再
(Timon of Athens, Act 4, Scene 2)
