And though she be but little, she is fierce.”   —   Shakespeare

(In the movie “Seabiscuit” the Toby Maguire character changes “she” to “he” to describe Seabiscuit to a reporter.  Not being the biggest Shakespeare pupil, I never gave the line a second thought!  Now I know better.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Is this a real Shakespeare quote or a fake? | WhatsOnStage

When I tell him he hates flatterers, he says he does, being then the most flattered.”   —   Shakespeare

(Not being a huge Shakespeare buff, it took me a while to see both FLATTERERS and FLATTERED.  Cute quote though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A jest’s prosperity lies in the ear of him who hears it, never in the tongue of him that speaks it.”   — Shakespeare
