Shakespeare’s words

HOW William Shakespeare would see today’s world:

“My love is deep; the more I give to thee [my cronies], the more I have”, and

“My bounty is as boundless as the seas [Treasury]”, — Jacob Zuma in Romeo and Juliet.

Zuma’s controversial portrait: “I can see his pride peep through each part of him,” Henry Vlll.

“Being so great I have no need to beg,” Donald Trump in Richard ll.

“Such antics do not amount to a man,” U.S. Democrats to Trump, Henry V.

”More of your conversation would infect my brain,” Julius Malema in Coriolanus.

“Away, you mouldy rogue, away,” in Henry ll, regarding Robert Mugabe.

“They were devils incarnate,” Henry V, of Isil executioners.

“As they say, when the age is in, the wit is out,” Mugabe in Much Ado About Nothing.
