Great Shakespearean one-liners

 
If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
He that loves to be flattered is worthy o' the flatterer.
' Tis best to weigh the enemy more mighty than he seems.
They do not love that do not show their love.
There is no darkness but ignorance.
The object of art is to give life a shape
So foul and fair a day I have not seen.
Poor and content is rich, and rich enough.
No legacy is so rich as honesty.
O, had I but followed the arts!
Modest doubt is called the beacon of the wise.
