Doubt that the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt I love

Admittedly I had to look it up, because I don't know [it] by heart.

O dear Ophelia, I am ill at these numbers.
I have not art to reckon my groans; but that
I love thee best, O most best, believe it. Adieu.
Thine evermore, most dear lady, whilst this machine is to him,

Hamlet

Love it. Romanticism at its best.

Wish I had paid more attention to Shakespeare in High School.

love shaky!! would have loves to see say this:
MERCUTIO
O, then, I see Queen Mab hath been with you.
She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes
In shape no bigger than an agate-stone
On the fore-finger of an alderman,
Drawn with a team of little atomies
Athwart men's noses as they lie asleep;
Her wagon-spokes made of long spiders' legs,
The cover of the wings of grasshoppers,
The traces of the smallest spider's web,
The collars of the moonshine's watery beams,
Her whip of cricket's bone, the lash of film,
Her wagoner a small grey-coated gnat,
Not so big as a round little worm
Prick'd from the lazy finger of a maid;
Her chariot is an empty hazel-nut
Made by the joiner squirrel or old grub,
Time out o' mind the fairies' coachmakers.
And in this state she gallops night by night
Through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love;
O'er courtiers' knees, that dream on court'sies straight,
O'er lawyers' fingers, who straight dream on fees,
O'er ladies ' lips, who straight on kisses dream,
Which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues,
Because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are:
Sometime she gallops o'er a courtier's nose,
And then dreams he of smelling out a suit;
And sometime comes she with a tithe-pig's tail
Tickling a parson's nose as a' lies asleep,
Then dreams, he of another benefice:
Sometime she driveth o'er a soldier's neck,
And then dreams he of cutting foreign throats,
Of breaches, ambuscadoes, Spanish blades,
Of healths five-fathom deep; and then anon
Drums in his ear, at which he starts and wakes,
And being thus frighted swears a prayer or two
And sleeps again. This is that very Mab
That plats the manes of horses in the night,
And bakes the elflocks in foul sluttish hairs,
Which once untangled, much misfortune bodes:
This is the hag, when maids lie on their backs,
That presses them and learns them first to bear,
Making them women of good carriage:
This is she--

but this is my fave:
LADY MACBETH
Out, damned spot! out, I say!--One: two: why,
then,'tis time to do't.--Hell is murky!--Fie, my
lord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need we
fear who knows it, when none can call our power to
account?--Yet who would have thought the old man
to have had so much blood in him.

You all are so romantic. For some reason the only bit of Hamlet I remember by heart is,

I'll have grounds
More relative than this—the play's the thing
Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King.

But my favorite bit of Shakespeare? Oh this for sure and I still know it. It's from As You Like It

No sooner met but they looked;
No sooner looked but they loved;
No sooner loved but they sighed;
No sooner signed but they asked one another the reason;
No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy;
And in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage...

Shakespeare definitely had it going on. I never "had to" memorize when I was in school. But I do remember some things which makes research easy.

From The Tempest

Wherefore weep you?

At mine unworthiness that dare not offer
What I desire to give, and much less take
What I shall die to want. But this is trifling,
And all the more it seeks to hide itself
The bigger bulk it shows. Hence, bashful cunning!
And prompt me, plain and holy innocence!
I am your wife, if you will marry me.
If not, I'll die your maid: to be your fellow
You may deny me, but I'll be your servant
Whether you will or no.

I hated having to read all those Shakespeare plays at school. Sorry ladies, but I found them boring. Here is one person who is not a fan of Shakespeare. If Keanu had to speak to me about Shakespeare, I would give him a withering look 'cos it would just remind me of those school days, LOL.

As fate pulls us like the wind in a storm
Our eyes locked, I was looking deep in your eyes, they are like the windows into your soul,
I could see the pain, love, sadness, heartache and happiness.
As the days pass by like the pages of an open book ready to feel in the story line.
Day by day it is becoming clear now,
As I sit in the sand overlooking the sea, the moon shines over the sea bright as the stars in the sky and I feel your presence in my heart and soul,
You are like a ghost who haunts my soul and heart.
I feel as if I have known you my whole life.

KMK, I had a hard time with it in school, too. We studied MB in grade 10 and luckily we had an amazing teacher. She skipped the "read along record" and chose instead to have an open dialogue. She was pretty direct and never sugar coated anything. Her enthusiasm is what snapped me out of my reverie. I didn't love him back then,(I enjoyed Wuthering Heights, more!) but I enjoy him today. I'm no expert, but I enjoy what I've been exposed to.

From Wuthering Heights

"You teach me how cruel you've been - cruel and false. Why do you despise me? Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? I have not one word of comfort. You deserve this. You have killed yourself. Yes, you may kiss me, and cry, and wring out my kisses and tears; they'll blight you - they'll damn you. You loved me--then what right had you to leave me? What right--answer me--for the poor fancy you felt for Linton? Because misery, and degradation and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will, did it. I have not broken your heart--you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine"

Another from Wuthering Heights and then I'm off to read it again.!!!

"I cannot express it; but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is, or should be an existence of yours beyond you. What were the use of creation if I were entirely contained here? My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff's miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning; my great thought in living is himself. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the Universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods. Time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees — my love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath — a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff — he's always, always in my mind — not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself — but as my own being — so, don't talk of our separation again — it is impracticable."
