I love Shakespeare.
One I quote often, particularly useful when talking about others in the advertising business:
…it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
—Macbeth, Act V, scene v
Love me or hate me, both are in my favour. If you love me, I'll always be in your heart. If you hate me, I'll always be in your mind.~William Shakespeare
"The course of true love never did run smooth."(Midsummer Night’s Dream - Act 1, Scene 1)
= Love is like a river. It is not always smooth. It is never easy.
