The most quoted writer (4/10)

List item

Shakespeare’s works stand as one of the most quoted of all time in the English language, rivalled only by the writers of the English bible. According to the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, Shakespeare wrote approximately 1/10 of the most quoted lines in the English language across all publications. We owe many everyday phrases to Shakespeare’s creative mind, including: “Vanish into thin air”, “Puking”, “Good riddance”, “Wear my heart upon my sleeve”, “Break the ice” and so on.
