Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is packed with common expressions and famous lines. Here are the most memorable of them all.
If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it.
(1.1.1), Duke Orsino
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ’em.
My purpose is, indeed, a horse of that colour.
Out of the jaws of death.
This is very midsummer madness.
O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
O, stay and hear; your true love’s coming,
I’ll be revenged on the whole pack of you.
Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.
There is no darkness but ignorance.
I was adored once too.
(2.3.171), Sir Andrew
