You must have been hiding under a rock last week not to have noticed that April 23 was the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. From international celebrations to news programs, The Bard was honored for his plays, sonnets and poems.  The observance, of course, will continue through 2016 and certainly will lead to many people discovering that “what’s old is new.”

One doesn’t have to be a fan of Shakespeare to have been influenced by his works.  We found a delightful article in Entrepreneur magazine that features 15 of his most inspirational quotes, some of which you might choose to use in your own life.

Among our favorites:

Don’t take on too much: “Be patient, for the world is broad and wide.” — Romeo and Juliet

Meet deadlines: “Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” — The Merry Wives of Windsor

Anticipate success: “Fortune brings in some boats that are not steer’d.” – Cymbeline

The fact that we are celebrating Shakespeare centuries after his death proves that great writing is timeless!
