Billy Jader -- Shakespeare Bookcase

I was really excited when I heard about the special anniversary Billy Jader bookcase covered in quotes by William Shakespeare. I just got out to get mine. But as I was putting it together I noticed that three of the quotes are falsely attributed (and there are only about ten quotes on it), and not by William Shakespeare at all. This is extremely disappointing. Didn't anyone do any research when they made this piece of furniture? Why hasn't anyone noticed this yet? Anyway, I would recommend that true Shakespeare geeks not buy this bookcase due to these blatant mistakes. I'm hoping I'll be able to return it.

Re: Billy Jader -- Shakespeare Bookcase

If music be the food of love, play on -- Twelfth Night

Say as you think and speak it from your souls -- H6 part II

To be or not to be -- Hamlet

They do not love that do not show their love -- Two Gents

love goes towards love -- Romeo and Juliet

My heart is ever at your service -- Timon

A friend is one that knows you are you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become and still allows you to grow -- NOT SHAKESPEARE. I noticed this one immediately. It doesn't even sound anything like Shakespeare. It's not even iambic.

When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew -- NOT SHAKESPEARE

the love of heaven makes one heavenly -- NOT SHAKESPEARE

Re: Billy Jader -- Shakespeare Bookcase

That is interesting! The friend one- obviously not Shakespeare is right. The "when I saw you" one is considered "unknown" by most sites, and the last one "the love of heaven makes one heavenly" is attributed to Shakespeare on multiple sites, but not by play/poem, so it's suspect without more info.

Fascinating.

Acckk. I'd demand my money back, and restitution for having to read that, too.

Re: Billy Jader -- Shakespeare Bookcase

I've unearthed the original quote...

"A friend is one that knows you don't know Shakespeare, understands you haven't been anywhere near anyone who knows anything about Shakespeare, accepts that you have become lazy about Shakespeare and still allows you to grow rich from the name Shakespeare."
