Drama Quotes

Drama is one of the oldest forms of art known to mankind. According to a few resources, this art form originated in Ancient Greece. Plays were considered a form of worship in this nation years ago and were staged to and it was classified in two genres, namely tragedy and comedy. Soon this form of art became popular in other parts of the world as well. Drama was used for several purposes later on, such as imparting moral lessons, addressing issues of social concerns, acquiring information about what is going on in their country or the capital. Shakespeare is regarded as the greatest writer of English language and an outstanding dramatist. He has penned several plays, such as 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Julius Caesar', 'Macbeth', 'Othello', 'Hamlet' and more.

Cinema, one of the most popular and influential art forms of recent times has been derived from drama. Read these famous drama quotes and feel free to share them with your friends and families.
