William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (Stratford-upon-Avon, 26 April 1564 (baptised) - 23 April 1616) was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet, and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. One of his friends, Ben Jonson said once "He was not of an age, but for all time."

William Shakespeare: A happy life

I always feel happy.
You know why?
Because I don't expect anything from anyone.
Expectations always hurt.
Life is short ...
So love your life ...
Be happy ...
and keep smiling ...
that's life ...
feel it, live it, love it and enjoy it.
