English to English translation of William Shakespeare
We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. Let no one who loves be unhappy... even love unreturned has its rainbow. If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars. Dream in light years, challenge miles, walk step by step.
