For today’s look at the best quotations by William Shakespeare (1564-1616), I’ve chosen a title that itself gets quoted a great deal, “The Comedy of Errors.”
Again, the quotations mix familiarity and rarity that should be more familiar. In the former category is:
“There is something in the wind.”
— Act III, Scene 1
In the latter category, try these:
“Ill deeds are doubled with an evil word.”
— Act III, Scene 2
“A back-friend, a shoulder-clapper.”
— Act IV, Scene 2
