Tale Quotations

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
William Shakespeare

Life is as tedious as twice-told tale, vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.
William Shakespeare

All men are children, and of one family. The same tale sends them all to bed, and wakes them in the morning.
Henry David Thoreau

The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them... Whether you find satisfaction in life depends not on your tale of years, but on your will.
Michel de Montaigne

As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
