Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale Vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man.


William Shakespeare

1564-1616 was an English poet, playwright and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 37 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

la vida es tan tediosa como un cuento contado dos veces que irrita el oído sordo de un hombre somnoliento.

जीवन उतना ही थकाऊ है जितना कि एक दो बार बताई गई कहानी एक नीरस आदमी के सुस्त कान को घेरे हुए।

ನಿದ್ರೆಯ ಮನುಷ್ಯನ ಮಂದ ಕಿವಿಯನ್ನು ಕೆರಳಿಸುವ ಎರಡು ಬಾರಿ ಹೇಳಿದ ಕಥೆಯಂತೆ ಜೀವನವು ಬೇಸರದ ಸಂಗತಿಯಾಗಿದೆ.

زندگی اتنی ہی تکلیف دہ ہے جتنی دو بار کہانی کی وجہ سے کہنے لگنے والے آدمی کے سستے کان پر تکلیف ہوتی ہے۔
