Shakespeare quiz: Can you match the quote to the play?

Although we don't actually know Shakespeare's birthday, it is officially celebrated on April 23. This year, to mark his 447th, are you willing to test your knowledge of the Bard? See how many of these familiar Shakespearean lines you can match to the plays in which they appear.

1. To which play does this existential pondering belong?

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


Twelfth Night

The Tempest
