More Quiz

Here are some more quiz rounds. I should say that I’ve tried these out a couple of times, but they might still be too hard.

Questions

Shakespeare or not?

In this round, you have to say whether the following quotes are written by Shakespeare or not.

  1. How do I love thee, let me count the ways
  2. Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we first practise to deceive
  3. Till swollen with cunning, of a self-conceit, His waxen wings did mount above his reach, And, melting, Heavens conspir’d his overthrow.
  4. What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god!
  5. Sing, O muse, of the rage of Achilles, son of Peleus, that brought countless ills upon the Achaeans.
  6. To see a World in a Grain of Sand,And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, And Eternity in an hour.
  7. Shall I compare thee to a summers day, Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date
  8. A Spacious Hive well stock’d with Bees, That lived in Luxury and Ease; And yet as fam’d for Laws and Arms, As yielding large and early Swarms; Was counted the great Nursery, Of Sciences and Industry.
  9. Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
  10. A house divided against itself shall not stand
