To celebrate the release of our Shakespeare themed coloring book, Color The Bard: A Coloring Book Featuring the Sonnets, Sound, And Fury of William Shakespeare, we’ve collected some of his most famous quotes about life and love.

Though William Shakespeare has been dead for more than 400 years, The Bard’s writing still resonates with modern audiences because of his well-phrased insight into the human condition. Shakespeare’s quotes about life and love still ring true to this day!

“If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! “

— Orsino, Twelfth Night

“Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit.”

— Feste, Twelfth Night

“The better part of valor is discretion.”

— Falstaff, Henry IV, Part 1

“Brevity is the soul of wit.”

— Polonius, Hamlet

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”

— Helena, Midsummer Night’s Dream

“Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.”

— Caesar, Julius Caesar

“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, Macbeth

“All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold.”

— Prince of Morocco, Merchant of Venice

“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

— Lysander, Midsummer Night’s Dream

“Go hang yourselves all!
You are idle shallow things; I am not of your element.”

— Malvolio, Twelfth Night

“Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall”

— Escalus, Measure for Measure

“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,
His acts being seven ages.”

Jaques, As You Like It

“Of all base passions, fear is the most accursed.”

Joan la Pucelle, King Henry the Sixth, Part I

Let every man be master of his time.”

Macbeth, Macbeth

“Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale,
Vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.”

Lewis, King John

“The web of our life is of a mingled yarn,
good and ill together.”

First Lord, All’s Well That Ends Well

“O excellent! I love long life better than figs.”

Charmian, Antony and Cleopatra

“To thine own self be true.”

Polonius, Hamlet

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on
and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

Prospero, The Tempest

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness,
and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

Malvolio, Twelfth Night

“The time of life is short;
to spend that shortness basely were too long.”

Hotspur, Henry IV, Part 1

“I burn, I pine, I perish.”

Lucentio, The Taming of the Shrew

“When we are born, we cry that we are come
To this great stage of fools.”

King Lear, King Lear

“Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.”

Trinculo, The Tempest

“I am a man more sinned against than sinning.”

King Lear, King Lear

All About Water: As Told By The Plumber Who's Seen It All

By Greg Chick and M.P. Zarrella

Synopsis

All About Water is an informative, fun illustrated book that tells the complete story of water through two fictional characters, cousins Mike and Mac Ro. Mike Ro is not interested in the big picture of water, while Mac Ro advocates for planet earth and does his best to educate Mike.

Readers get a broad look into water that covers everything from efficient plumbing design to graywater reuse and how to pick the right water conditioner. Beyond practical tips, the book explores the value of water as a limited resource, touching on the importance of water conservation and the complexity of municipal water management.

All About Water is useful for the homeowner who wants to learn how to read their water bill, anyone concerned about the global water crisis, or those who fall somewhere between. This book has something for everyone!


Praise for All About Water

“All About Water” lives up to its title! For all those who have advocated for more efficient use of fine water resources, this book is an essential tool in the toolbox.

Author Greg Chick uses his 40+ year history as a Southern California plumber, including the last 10 years as the “Do-it-Yourself Plumber” on YouTube, to share personal experiences and to explore the quality, quantity, social and economic aspects of water. Not only does it help the layman understand the value and opportunity we all have with water, but it provides practical tips to help us all be more thoughtful and efficient consumers. The book is a quick and informative read that is relevant to all ages.

-Mary Eggert, Global Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer at Global Water Works


"...One thing that struck me about the book is its usefulness as a tool to teach young children about water conservation. The illustrations by Audrey Ly are fun, and young children would relate to H2Homie (the water guy), a cartoon, water drop appearing at the end of chapters with questions and facts to expand upon information. The anecdotes and illustrations throughout the book could easily be used to foster family discussions about water use and conservation awareness. Many helpful hints and facts are presented in illustrations to help children understand the importance of careful water usage.

Having read many articles on conservation, I can say this is one of the more enjoyable reads on the subject I’ve encountered. I appreciate the author’s enthusiasm for his subject and his desire to educate his readers. It is apparent this book is a work of love. Well-written and edited, it is quite entertaining for a book of this nature. Using the characters, Mac and Mike, throughout as examples of good and bad water usage renders the information easily attainable.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend it to anyone wishing to learn more about water, plumbing, and conservation. It offers valuable information and includes plenty of references and links for those seeking more. As an informative guide for families wishing to teach their children about conservation or a helpful reference in the home, All About Water delivers."
