Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare!
My absolute favorite Shakespeare quote is from Hamlet:

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
(Act I, Sc v)

Oh, what a world of wisdom is contained in that one statement! I have had numerous occasions to use it with my husband in our decades of marriage, when I thought he was jumping to conclusions or being – shall we say – a bit close-minded about something. In fact, I’ve used it so much that nowadays, all I have to say is, “Yes, Horatio, I heard you,” and he gets the point!
