    1. The Tempest and others. I'm going to have to start including the play since that question pops up regularly.
      Hugs received and returned.

  2. If in doubt I will always guess Shakespeare - and be right more often than not.

  4. Nope Sandra, I actually didn't! 🙂

    But, that's a pretty cool fun-fact. 👍🏻

  5. I'm not a Shakespeare fan. Have never read a single thing by him (hangs head in shame). So of course, I had no idea, but it's great trivia.

    1. There's a lot of his works, I'm sorry to say, I'm not familiar with.

    1. That's a good question, Annalisa.
      Can you imagine your sayings living through time like that?
