The wisdom of William Shakespeare

"A light heart lives long."

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Ain't it the truth?! Lift up thine heart whene'er you can…

Wikipedia's this and that about Shakespeare


  1. Lift up thine heart would be a bit of an insult in Elizabethan England -- at least in this context. The polite way to say it would be "Lift up your heart." Sounds less old-timey though. Thou and its derivatives should only be used when directed at individuals of lower status.
