Shakespeare said many things, so what specifically you meant? say, the bard said things like:
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet".
"O que é que há, pois, num nome? Aquilo a que chamamos rosa, mesmo com outro nome, cheiraria igualmente bem."
"All's Well That Ends Well'' [in a title]
And in the play 'Measure for Measure':
"Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt".
Who let the dogs out? and let it be...
Okay, okay, these ones wasn´t the bard that said, but if he had said it would be just like him. The guy was brilliant! And, as we can see, today people talk like this: "Oh, Romeo, Romeo! where are you Romeo?" instead of the above quotation, simple as that. I think that our 'Tiago' Shakespeare could see this now, she was going to be very proud.
Come on! Shakespeare wasn´t that purist, indeed he turn the language upside down and that tiny Island owes too much to the guy.
