BLOG POST: Shakespeare’s birthday

It’s 23 April and – among other things – it’s Shakespeare’s birthday. To celebrate the Bard, try to read something he wrote, or cast your eye over these common phrases and sayings from his writings, which have found their way into our everyday language:

  • Night owl
  • In stitches
  • Lie low
  • Love is blind
  • Make your hair stand on end
  • Fancy free
  • Fair play
  • Up in arms
  • Vanish into thin air
  • Wear your heart on your sleeve
  • Seen better days
  • Wild goose chase
  • For ever and a day
  • High time
  • In a pickle

And that’s just for starters! Go on! Go grab a sonnet to read!
