William Shakespeare

He was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,/
Chief nourisher in life's feast./

William Shakespeare

The veins unfill'd, our blood is cold, and then we put upon the morning, are unapt to give or to forgive; but when we have stuffed these pipes and these conveyances of our blood with wine and feeding, we have suppler souls than in our priest-like fasts: Therefore, I'll watch him till he be dieted to my request, and then I'll set upon him."
