To be or not to be......

a month ago
So who remembers studying Shakespeare at school? I do...and I hated it (yeah, I know, I should be ashamed!).

But, on the 23rd April, it will be the anniversary of his birth...and death! So I thought I would have a quick look at some of his famous sayings. And I had no idea just how many of our everyday sayings actually derived from his work. Truly incredible that the list below of really common sayings come from one of the world's most famous writers...and are nearly 500 years old!

How many do you recognise?? Can you use them in a sentence??

1. "WILD GOOSE CHASE"
2. "GREEN-EYED MONSTER"
3. "PURE AS THE DRIVEN SNOW"
4. "SEEN BETTER DAYS"
5. "OFF WITH HIS HEAD"
6. "FOREVER AND A DAY"
7. "GOOD RIDDANCE"
8. "FAIR PLAY"
9. "LIE LOW"
10. "IT'S GREEK TO ME"
11. "AS GOOD LUCK WOULD HAVE IT"
12. "YOU'VE GOT TO BE CRUEL TO BE KIND"
13. "LOVE IS BLIND"
14. "BE-ALL, END-ALL"
15. "BREAK THE ICE"
16. "HEART OF GOLD"
17. "KILL WITH KINDNESS"
18. "KNOCK, KNOCK! WHO'S THERE?"
19. "YOU CAN HAVE TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING"
20. "THE GAME IS AFOOT"
