Hi
while I was searching thru your collection of quotes by William Shakespeare
for the one I seem to remember being out of »Macbeth«
"A mans faults are (engraved/embossed) into copper,
but his virtues are written into the waters" (maybe not very exact, but to this sense ..)
I read thru all 268 -- found some doublettes and one triplett:

Cowards die many times before their deaths,
The valiant never taste of death but once. (page1... #29408)

Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come. (page91... #25281)

Cowards die many times before their deaths: The valiant never taste of death but once. (page241... #29928)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of war! (page1... #34488)

Cry "Havoc," and let slip the dogs of war. (page121... #25284)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
See first that the design is wise and just: that ascertained, pursue it resolutely; do not for one repulse forego the purpose that you resolved to effect. (page31... #28791)

Do not, for one repulse, forego the purpose that you resolved to effect.
(page241... #2770)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Beware
Of entrance to a quarrel; but being in,
Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy;
For the apparel oft proclaims the man. (page61... #25300)

Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice. (page241... #2304)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more,
Or close the wall up with our English dead!
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger:
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood. (page121... #25259)

In peace, there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness, and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger, stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood...now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide, hold hard the breath, and bend up every spirit to its full height! (page241... #3024)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

typo(s) in:
Pity is the virture of the law, and none but tyrants use it cruelly. (page31... #29309)
- there is no virture, but virtue

my former posting just related to page 31... The Quote# is 29568
".... a just and charitable war."
