10 Shakespeare Quotes That Give Me Chills


1. “We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep” -Prospero, The Tempest


2. “The houses that he makes last till doomsday” – the Gravedigger, Hamlet

3. “When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.” –Romeo and Juliet

4.  That skull had a tongue in it, and could sing once. –Hamlet

5. “Sith in his prime Death doth my love destroy,
They that love best their loves shall not enjoy.” –Venus and Adonis

6. “Your face, my thane, is as a book where men
May read strange matters. To beguile the time,
Look like the time; bear welcome in your eye,
Your hand, your tongue: look like the innocent flower,
But be the serpent under’t.” –Macbeth

7. “My love is as a fever, longing still
For that which longer nurseth the disease,
Feeding on that which doth preserve the ill,
Th’ uncertain sickly appetite to please.” -Sonnet 147
8. She’s Love, she loves, and yet she is not loved –Venus and Adonis
9. “I burn, I pine, I perish.” –The Taming of the Shrew
10. Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
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. –Macbeth
