FAMOUS QUOTES : 

FAMOUS QUOTES And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, Win us with honest trifles, to betray's In deepest consequence (act I scene III) There's no art to find the mind's construction in the face. (act I scene III) -Stars, hide your fires! Let not light see my black and deep desires. (act I scene IV) -I have given suck, and know How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me: I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have pluck'd my nipple from his boneless gums, And dash'd the brains out, had I so sworn As you have done to this. (act I scene VII) -Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee; -I have thee not, and yet I see thee still. Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible To feeling as to sight? or art thou but A dagger of the mind, a false creation, Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain? I see thee yet, in form as palpable As this which now I draw ......
