Know Your Shakespeare


Here’s how to play…Identify the quote by telling me what book it’s from.  Leave a comment with the # of the quote and the title of the book and I’ll cross it off the list.  No Googling, that’s cheating and no fun!  If you know them all, please don’t guess every one.

 Hint: The quotes came from these plays.  Some are used twice.  A Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It, Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Richard III, Romeo & Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night

  1. Duane, You are correct about both things. But, Off with his head is also from one of the plays. Good catch!
