    You may think Shakespeare is lame.
    However, you’re going to feel lame if you miss out on the plethora of social references to Shakespeare’s plays.
    His lines are famous and are used across the globe in several contexts, but mostly in popular media, movies, songs, TV shows, and novels.
    Here are some lines you may already know by Shakespeare but didn’t realize he wrote them
  • 11. Famous Lines
    Double Double Boil and Trouble
    By the pricking of my thumbs something wicked this ways comes
    What dreams may come?
    To be or not to be, that is the question
    Neither a borrower or a lender be
    To thine own self be true
    Good night, good night, parting is such sweet sorrow that I may say good night till it be morrow.
