The wisest words spoken

If all the world’s a stage
Then light my way
Because out, out your brief candle is not
Four centuries past, yet I still cannot grasp
That undiscovered country that makes words immortal
If the good that men do is interred with their bones
Then this precious stone is a beauty too rich
Methinks it’s a jewel in the ear of us all
As the wisest words spoken are spoken by fools

from This Gives Life To Thee, performed by Akala, Nitin Sawhney, and Dane Hurst, as part of the BBC’s Shakespeare Live! From the RSC, 23rd April 2016.
