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.

    Die wahre Hoffnung ist schnell und fliegt mit Schwalbenflügeln zu Königen und zu gemeineren Kreaturenkönigen.

    le véritable espoir est rapide, et vole avec les rois des ailes d'hirondelle, il fait des dieux et des créatures plus méchantes des rois.

    ware hoop is snel, en vliegt met zwaluwvleugels koningen, het maakt goden, en gemener schepselen koningen.

    a verdadeira esperança é rápida, e voa com as asas de uma andorinha, reis, ela faz deuses, e criaturas mesquinhas, reis.
