This remarkably affordable volume presents over 400 quotations conveniently arranged by topic: love, marriage, conduct and morality, truth, beauty, time, death, music, and more.Included are such timeless observations as: All that glitters is not gold, Brevity is the soul of wit, How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is/ To have a thankless child; While you live, tell truth and shame the devil ; The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream, and many more. Romantic thoughts receive a particularly rich treatment; extensive selections on the subject of love include quotes from the plays (The course of true love never did run smooth; Speak low if you speak love) and sonnets (For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings, / That then I scorn to change my state with kings).
