He was not of an age, but for all time.
Ben Jonson, To the Memory of my Beloved, the Author, Mr William Shakespeare.
Shakespeare was born on 23 April 1564 and died on 23 April 1616.

If we wish to know the force of human genius, we should read Shakespeare. If we wish to see the insignificance of human learning,we may study his commentators.-- William Hazlitt, _Table Talk_, 1821
