Do you recognize these quotes? Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste death but once. Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more.

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any name would smell as sweet. There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
