Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare!

Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare!

Shakespeare’s exact birth date is unknown, however we know that he was baptised on 26th April 1564. Baptisms would most often take place a few days after a child was born, and historians therefore celebrate his birthday on 23rd April. We thought a blog post sharing a few of his brilliant quotes (of which there are many!) would be a perfect way to celebrate.
