Shakespeare, anyone read his plays?

As a kid at school it bored the shit out of me, however I started reading them again a while back and they really are timeless. Some of the language used is amazing, and each play is crammed full of memorable lines. One of my favorites is Julius Caesar and a few great lines are:

"Men at some time are masters of their fates."

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once."

"Ambition should be made of sterner stuff."

there are many more, but I suggest you read it yourselves.

So do any of you guys read Shakespeare? If so, which plays do you like/what are your favorite lines?

There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune
Omitted, all the voyage of their life. . .

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves,
"You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get teh job done."
