Examples of Shakespeare in a Sentence

  1. Drew Allan Cicconi:

    Looking at the waves, cresting then hitting the shore, only to retreat ignominiously back to sea, it reminded me that people are like waves. Their moods shift and turn, then crest before hitting the shore, and only some of the lucky few can ride that wave standing up, smoothly carving an intricate pattern as he or she rides towards a sun blanched shore. At times like this, I always like to quote from Macbeth’s soliloquy in act 5, scene 5 of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, when Macbeth heard of his wife’s death.

  2. Abdul Qadir Farookh:

    Shakespeare was no ordinary person.

  3. Andrea Mays:

    Henry and his wife Emily collected, over thirty years, anything you can imagine that is related to Shakespeare.

  4. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

    If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life is always what you make of it, although it's often full of surprises and unexpected twists. Playwright William Shakespeare wrote that Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. In actuality, your life is a story written by no one else but you; and it's always up to you to make it interesting, worthwhile, and wonderful.
