My favorite of the terms from this video is definitely knock, knock! who’s there? from Macbeth. It’s one of those phrases so embedded into our colloquial language it’s hard to imagine such a succinct origin story. Also, I’ve seen Macbeth performed over 4 times, and have read it about the same amount of times on my own, and had never picked up on that phrasing until now.
You might already know that Shakespeare came up with such famous phrases as “star-crossed lovers” and “much ado about nothing.” But did you also know that the immortal bard came up with everyday terms we all use everyday?
