Shakespeare Quiz with a special giveaway – giveaway closed

quizThis is a toughie, but take a few minutes and see if you can match the quotes to the play correctly.  Each title has only one quote.  The person who scores the highest will win a small gift I bought when visiting the Library of Congress. If there is a tie, I’ll have Gage pick a name 🙂  Good luck!!

Take your best guesses, be entered to win a prize – you only need one correct answer to be eligible for a prize.  No cheating (using the web to help find answers) or copying.  All extra details can be found here.

Leave your guesses in the comment section by Tuesday afternoon.
