Thank You Shakespeare

So many common phrases and idiomatic expressions in English come from the works of Shakespeare… here are just a few:

Seen better days

Too much of a good thing

Send him packing

Laughing stock

Wear your heart on your sleeve

Knock, knock! Who’s There?

Heart of Gold

Set your teeth on edge

Good riddance

Faint hearted

Fight fire with fire

Come what may

For goodness’ sake

Not slept one wink

The game is up

What’s done is done

Full circle

Baited breath

Green Eyed Monster

Vanish into thin air

Be all / End all

Dead as a doornail

In a pickle

Fair play / Foul play

Brave new world

Makes your hair stand on end

The world is my oyster

Wild goose chase

Naked truth

Break the ice

Breathed his last

Off with his head

Lie low

Love is blind

A sorry sight

Heart of Hearts

A piece of work
