As far as there being any documented evidence or historical proof that William Shakespeare studied the Advaita teachings, none exists; however, there is proof in his writings that he was well along the "path" to Realization; moreover, many of his pointers provide excellent opportunities for seekers to consider some of his teachings that paralleled those of the "ancient masters."

Some of the quotations discussed in the book include the following which are all rooted in non-duality:

"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players"

"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so"

"O what a goodly outside falsehood hath"

"All that glitters is not gold"

"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin"

"Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing"

"Much ado about nothing"

"I say there is no darkness but ignorance"

"To thine own Self be true and it must follow as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man"

"Nature is made better by no means"

"Out, out, brief candle"

"All that lives must die, passing through nature to eternity"

"There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy"

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon a stage"

"Our revels now are ended. These our actors, as I foretold you, were all spirits and are melted into the air, into thin air"

and

"The heavens themselves, the planets, and this centre observe degree, priority, and place. Insisture, course, proportion, season, form, office, and custom, in all line of order."

The quotes provide a starting point for a deeper discussion of the type pointers that Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj shared in his ultimate talks at the end of his "teaching career" rather than the type of pointers offered earlier on.
