Yes, let's ask Shakespeare.
We live in an "age of anxiety" that has not changed for 400 years. When you feel a little tired, open this book gently. You will surely find words that will restart your life.

Today, we are easily swayed by words and our minds can easily become unstable.
The words we speak are always subject to evaluation, and there is no sense of stability as a foundation on which to base our words ......, which we modify based on the eyes of others.
The message of suffering and living that people have faced throughout the ages is still alive in Shakespeare's works, 400 years after his birth.

This is a collection of quotes selected from all of Shakespeare's works, which have universal value.

*Quotes are extracted from all of Shakespeare's works on such themes as relationships, love, turning points, growing up, getting lost, no regrets, abundance, and impermanence. The original text is also included.
*An easy-to-understand synopsis of each quote.
*The stories behind the quotes and "how to apply them to your own problems" are also included. This is a book that you can read, memorize, quote in your daily life, and use as a basis for decision-making and action, and that you can rely on for the rest of your life.
