One of my favourite writers. I was looking for a quote from a play of his when I stumbled upon this site . As you all know, not all you read on the web is true (really!!), so I am curious to hear what you think (and no, not all you read on the web is true!! ).
Did he really invent the words: barefaced, critical, leapfrog, monumental, castigate, majestic, obscene, frugal, radiance, dwindle, countless, submerged, excellent, fretful, gust, hint, hurry, lonely, summit, pedant ?
Did he really invent those phrases: "neither rhyme nor reason", "to thine ownself be true", "eaten... out of house and home", "play fast and loose", "apple of [one's] eye", "budge an inch", "All that glitters is not gold", "wear [one's] heart upon [one's] sleeve", "brave new world", "[to be] in a pickle", "good riddance", "caught red-handed", "the green-eyed monster", "method in his madness ", "sweets for the sweet ", among others?
