He said: "...an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his Tiger's heart wrapped in a player's hide, supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you: and being an absolute Johannes fac totum, is in his own conceit the only Shake-scene in a country." Within 2 years he wa not only acting and writing for the Lord Chamberlain's Men but was also a partner of the operations as well.

"It's Greek to me",
if your lost property has vanished into thin air,
if you recall your salad days,
if you have been tongue-tied,
a tower of strength,
hoodwinked or in a pickle,
if you have knitted your brows, made a virtue of necessity, insisted on fair play,
slept not one wink,
modern words and phrases are from Shakespeare
