    莎士比亞:無言的純樸所表示的情感,才是最豐富的 (I don’t know if this quote matches the Chinese translation)

    When words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain.


    For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings

    That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

    (from: Sonnet 29)

    莎士比亞:愛情是一朵生長在絕崖邊緣的花,要想採摘它必須有勇氣。(Don’t know where this quote came from. Not sure if it is Shakespeare’s)

    Love is a magnificent flower on the edge of a cliff; to gather it we need courage.

    莎士比亞:黑夜無論怎樣悠長,白晝總會到來。(This is a Nigerian proverb, not a Shakespeare quote)

    No matter how long the night may be, the day is sure to come


    I am as true as truth’s simplicity,

    And simpler than the infancy of truth.


    Virtue and genuine graces in themselves speak what no words can utter.

    This quote means: When you speak less, whenever you speak, you speak volume.

    In another word, it means: Since you don't speak much, every time you speak, you speak something of great importance.

    So, I don't believe that it matches the translation of 無言的純樸所表示的情感,才是最豐富的.

    I cannot find that quote from Shakespeare.

    Something somewhat related (not from Shakespeare) maybe: The Clearest Words are those words which contain truth. The Grandest Feeling is that feeling which you call love.
