People find inspiration and motivation from a number of sources: nature, religion, music. One of the most effective balms for my soul is literature, in particular the work of William Shakespeare. You might have heard of him.
I know that there are many people who would rather crawl over barbed wire than read Shakespeare, but there are many, many others who feel the way I do about the Bard. Quite simply, he was one of the finest literary minds the world has ever known.
He seemed to understand the human condition; the powerful and, sometimes, painful emotions that we all experience. And, more importantly, he was able to express those emotions in some of the most beautiful phrases that exist in the English language.
So, without further ado (you see what I did there?), here are some life lessons from the great man himself, Shakespeare.
