I am not an expert, but seems to me the genius of Shakespeare is to pack greek insights into beautiful images and scenes. Like in this excerpt from Macbeth, which is beautiful way to pack Horace’s so much quoted Carpe Diem, as shown in this Barry very emotional scene.
Out, out, brief candle!William Shakespeare
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more.
