Shakespeare in Love Quotes - Quotations from the Great Poet Shakespeare

Shakespeare in Love quotes come from the 1998 film about the struggling writer and poet, William Shakespeare whose ideal woman (his muse) inspires him to write a play which changes the course of his life. That's what love does. It changes our direction. It takes us by surprise and shows us hidden facets of ourselves. It reveals our depth and the course of our emotions. The cast of this fabulous film included Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Judy Dench, Geoffrey Rush, Colin Firth, Ben Affleck and others.

Also included below are other quotations by Shakespeare.

a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come
ruin or rapture.

But never doubt I love.
