"A fool A ..." Quote of William Shakespeare

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

A fool, A fool! I met a fool i' the forest, A motley fool. A miserable world! As I do live by food, I met a fool, Who laid him down and basked him in the sun, And railed on Lady Fortune in good terms, In good set terms, and yet a motley fool.
