How to explain William Shakespeare's most famous quotes to children


'In a minute there are many days'. This phrase, said by Juliet in the play 'Romeo and Juliet', by Shakespeare, talks about the ability we have to lengthen or shorten the minutes according to the emotions we feel. When we are sad, time seems to pass very slowly. When we are happy, it seems to go faster.

Teaching children to live in the present from a young age will make them adults who will appreciate every minute. They will be optimistic and will be able to savor life. Do the things you want to do fight against laziness and get excited about discovering and learning new thingsIt will help them to take this position in life.

'My kingdom for a horse!' is a phrase that is said very often in a moment of stress, in a desperate attempt to find a way out.

This phrase, one of the most famous of the work 'Richard III' (W. Shakespeare), helps us to talk to children about emotions, what it feels like in times of stress, and how to find calm and exit to moments when we can barely control emotions.

Actually in the work of ShakespeareThis is the phrase that King Richard III pronounced when he fell in battle due to the stumbling of his horse because of a horseshoe in bad condition. Definitely, details are important. They should never be overlooked.

Love is a universal feeling. Children obviously feel love too. But ... are there different types of love? What is real love?

'Love does not look with the eyes, but with the soul' , of W. Shakespeare, is a phrase that is included in his work The dream of a nigth of summer, a work that portrays the triumph of true love over all things, including traps, deceptions and physical appearance.

Never lose hope or illusion. It is the last thing left in difficult times. At least it's what you think Shakespeare, and thus left him immortalized in one of his most famous phrases: 'The unfortunate has no other medicine than hope'.

This phrase is found in 'Measure for measure', a work that talks about how chance intervenes in our lives and how hope is the only consolation in the face of bad luck.

'He who goes too fast arrives as late as he who goes too slow' (Romeo and Juliet).

Neither fast nor slow. Not too impulsive, not too cerebral. At the end, virtue is in balance, and not in extremes. In fact, going too fast can trigger mistakes and oversights that ultimately get in the way.

This phrase from Shakespeare It serves to indicate to children that, in learning, wanting to finish something quickly and without paying attention is as bad as being left behind due to lack of interest.

He is not more powerful who uses the power he has without measure. Often the most powerful can be the humblest.

Shakespeare talks about power in this famous phrase from the play 'Measure for measure': 'It is excellent to have the strength of a giant, but of tyrants to use it as a giant.' With it he refers to the mediocrity of pride and tyranny.

It can help you talk with your children about the importance of the value of humility. Or also help you with this other phrase, from Hamlet: 'I could be encased in a nutshell and feel like king of infinite space'. In other words, power is not in having greatness, but in feeling great.

'To be or not to be, that is the question'. It is perhaps the most famous phrase in the works of Shakespeare. We find it in 'Hamlet'. It is the moment in which the main character considers the value of continuing to live in the face of death.

Without a doubt, one of the topics that we find most difficult to talk about with children is the topic of death. In this case, each family must find a way to talk about this issue with their children, according to their beliefs.

But this phrase also raises the following: any decision that is made will have great consequences. The right decision is often the hardest.

'He laughs at scars who has never felt a wound ...' (Romeo and Juliet, from W. Shakespeare).

Empathy is a fundamental value that we should teach children from an early age. Empathy allows us to see others with different eyes, to understand why someone often acts in a certain way. It invites us not to judge anyone, to listen ... it is, according to many thinkers, the most important value.

The future is not written. We only know the present. The future depends on us. This is more or less the meaning of one of the most popular phrases that W. Shakespeare collects in his work 'Hamlet':

'We know what we are; but not what we can be. ' This phrase makes us think about the importance of forging our own future through the effort we invest in the present. Although perhaps this other phrase will inspire you, also from Shakespeare: 'Fate is the one who shuffles the cards, but we are the ones who play.

The biggest lie is the lie to oneself. To be honest with others, you must first be honest with yourself.

Shakespeare talks numerous times about the problems that lies lead to and on the value of sincerity. One of his most famous phrases is found in the work of Hamlet. Says so: 'First of all, be true to yourself. And so, as true as night follows day, you will find that you cannot lie to anyone '.

Another famous phrase of his is also on this subject: 'With the bait of lies, a real carp is caught' (Hamlet). That is, the lie in the end uncovers the truth.
