A Big Shakespearean Bash
Shakespeare Lines and Quotes
"You've decided to have a party with all of Shakespeare's characters as the guests! Of course, there are introductions all around. Can you guess who is introducing themselves in these quotes?"

Whoa! It seems like someone doesn't think all of your guests are created equal! Especially a certain family! Can you tell me who said, "A dog of the house of Montague moves me!"
This man is certainly more sad than mad. Don't talk religion or politics with him. Who said, "I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes?"
It seems like this guy thinks he's above mingling with the weaker sex. We'll see if he's singing the same tune when the party's over! Tell me who said, "I would I could find it in my heart that I had not a hard heart, for truly, I love none."
This man appears quite modest about his speaking skills, but is he? Everyone else at the party seems entranced by him. You be the judge. Who said, "I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts. I am no orator."
This man is quite a contrast to the last guest! He appears quite confident about his acting ability, but perhaps without good reason! Who said, "I will move storms, I will condole in some measure...Yet my chief humor is for a tyrant: I could play Ercles rarely, or a part to tear a cat in."
Timon of Athens
This shy, quiet, charming girl is quite nice once you get to know her. Just don't make any assumptions based on her quietness. Who said, "I am sure, my love's more richer than my tongue." (I guess she's never heard of a double comparative. Oh well.)
This is one seriously melancholy gal! She doesn't seem to like your party, but don't worry, it's her, not you. Who said, "I will eat no meat, I'll not drink, sir... I'll not sleep neither, do Caesar what he can."
This man is convinced to show people that he's normal. I don't know about that! Who said, "I am not mad...I am as well in my wits as any man in Illyria."
This girl sure is feisty! She's positively certain that men aren't for her! Who would introduce themselves by saying, "I would rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me?"
This unwise man is seeing conspiracies everywhere, it seems. Little coincidences always add up to horrible things in his mind. Maybe it's also the fault of the company he keeps, possibly. Who said, "I saw my handkerchief in his hand!"
Uh-oh. Someone's in a fight already! This guy is obviously trying to prove that he's better than someone else, in terms of his love for a lady no less! Who said, "I am, my lord, as well derived as he, as well possest, my love is more than his!"
Duke of Illyria
This man certainly is calm and collected. He looks dangerous, and seems to know his own strength. Who said, "I am a soldier, I, older in practice, abler than yourself to make conditions."
This girl certainly falls in love fast! She met this guy at the party, and well, tell me who she might be. She said, "My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep, the more I give to thee, the more I have."
This man is quite preoccupied with a terrible matter. Who said, "Full of vexation come I, with complaint against my child."
This man is quite superstitious, and certainly believes that the stars have it in for him. I dunno, maybe he's right. Who said "O, I am fortune's fool!"
Timon of Athens
This woman is perhaps a bit before her time. She is trustworthy, but her escort here doesn't feel comfortable telling her his secrets. Maybe she's reacting too strongly though. I have a feeling this won't end well. Who said, "I have made strong proof of my constancy, giving myself a voluntary wound here, in the thigh: can I bear that with patience, and not my husband's secrets?"
This man gives almost anyone he meets heartburn he's so unpleasant. Steer away from him at the party! And he's very stubborn, don't seek to change him! Who said, "I cannot hide what I am. I must be sad when I have cause, and smile at no man's jests; eat when I have stomach, and wait for no man's leisure; sleep when I am drowsy, and tend on no man's business; laugh when I am merry, and claw no man in his humor."
Well, this guy here obviously doesn't know why his wit is off kilter. As the host, tell me which guest believes this to be true of himself: "Methinks sometimes I have no more wit than a Christian or an ordinary man has; but I am a great eater of beef, and I believe that does harm to my wit." (Let's hope there's no beef at the party!)
This "spirited" little fellow is certainly a joker! But he also claims to be a speedy one. Who said, "I'll put a girdle round the Earth in forty minutes!"
This man definitely is a tortured soul. I have a feeling he's going to regret what he's about to do... Who said, "Since Cassius first did whet me against Caesar, I have not slept. Between the acting of a dreadful thing and the first motion, all the interim is like a hideous dream."
This successful speaker is determined to prove that his or her message is peaceful. Who said, "I hold the olive in my hand; my words are as full of peace as matter."
This man is already discussing his family! Who said, "I have another daughter, who, I am sure, is kind and comfortable."
This man certainly has frequented your punch bowl once too often! Or maybe his priorities are mixed, or perhaps both! Who said, "I am a wise fellow; and, which is more, an officer; and, which is more, a householder; and, which is more, as pretty a piece of flesh as in any of Messina."
This woman is certainly in the dark, but I'm not sure if she's asking the right person for the information. Who said, "I must needs report the truth!"
To end, here is a "farewell" quote. Who might leave by saying, "Good night, sweet prince."?
