QUIZ: Can You Identify the Shakespeare Play by a Popular Quote?

Even if you haven’t read every Shakespeare play in existence (which is more than fair—dude wrote a bunch of those things), you probably at least know that “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is from Romeo and Juliet. Which, you know, nice job. You nailed it.

But what about the rest of these quotes? Can you identify their play of origin, too?
