جملات قصار انگلیسی

(شکسپیر)

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety

A countenance more in sorrow than in anger

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips

I will wear my heart upon my sleeve

Men's evil manners live in brass; their virtues we write in water

This precious stone set in the silver sea, this sceptered isle

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em

The course of true love never did run smooth

When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions
