[NABOKOV-L] Tidbits and quotes

In a site with literary puzzles, I found an interesting address with quotes from Shakespeare and the names of several authors who chose them for a title of their works. See: "There's a huge list of titles from Shakespeare here. "
I visited the address and copied those related to Timon of Atens (ToA)
