Monday Mystery

Hello Shakespeare fans! This week we’re kicking off some new, regular blog features. Today’s feature is called Monday Mystery: we post a Shakespeare quote, you guess the play. For bonus points, tell us who’s speaking!

Today we bring you this quote from one of Shakespeare’s comedies:

Methinks sometimes I have no more wit than a Christian or an ordinary man has; but I am a great eater of beef and I believe that does harm to my wit.

So what do you think, readers? It could become a new diet craze: stop eating beef and become a famous wit! But what play is it from?

Check back on Wednesday and Friday for our other new features!

    Is it from The Comedy of Errors? Did Antiphlus say it in Act 3?

    Is it from “The Merry Wives of Windsor”?

  3. Emma

    Merchant of Venice?

    It’s Twelfth Night! And Sir Andrew. I played Maria once upon a time and I loved that scene!
