Shakspeare (whom you and every playhouse bill
  Style the divine! the matchless! what you will),
    For gain, not glory, wing'd his roving flight,
      And grew immortal in his own despite.
      - Alexander Pope, Imitations of Horace
         (ep. I, bk. II, l. 69)

In strength of intellect he was a demigod; in profundity of view, a prophet; in all-seeing wisdom, a protecting spirit.
      - August Wilhelm von Schlegel

Hamlet's experience simply could not have happened to a plumber.
      - George Bernard Shaw

The man whom nature's self had made to mock herself, and truth to imitate.
      - Edmund Spenser

Shikspur, Shikspur! Who wrote it?
  No, I never read Shikspur.
    Then you have an immense pleasure to come.
      - Rev. James Townley, High Life Below Stairs
         (act II, sc. 1), (ed. 1759)

Scorn not the Sonnet. Critic, your have frowned,
  Mindless of its just honours; with this key
    Shakespeare unlocked his heart.
      - William Wordsworth, Scorn not the Sonnet

Whatever other learning he wanted, he was master of two books unknown to many profound readers, though books which the last conflagration can alone destroy,--I mean the book of nature and that of man.
      - Edward Young

Who knows if Shakespear might not have thought less, if he had read more?
      - Edward Young
