  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 178.

  • Today we have another quote by

  • Shakespeare and it's a famous old saying,

  • 'much ado about nothing. ' All right.

  • Let's take a look at the note here. This

  • quote is the title of a famous play

  • by Shakespeare between 1598 and 1599.

  • It has now become a common phrase to mean

  • that someone is making a big deal and

  • and a lot of noise and complaints about something

  • most people would consider insignificant,

  • not that important. So if we hear

  • that we hear everybody's making a big noise about it,

  • but like well, what is this ? Who cares ?

  • We say oh much ado about nothing. All right.

  • So let's continue here . Here, ado,

  • it means in this situation means a lot of fuss

  • or commotion. So ado means fuss

  • or commotion. People yelling, screaming

  • about something. But again about nothing.

  • Nothing of major importance. So let's

  • look at example number one. There are

  • many articles in the media that seem

  • to go out of their way to make much ado about nothing.

  • Often to get different groups of people

  • engaged in controversy. All right.

  • I know maybe they like to sensationalize things.

  • Maybe they like to create stories.

  • Maybe they like to create controversy.

  • Just because it makes it seem more exciting

  • or maybe they have other reasons as well.

  • Let's look at number two.

  • Seriously, he is making this big a deal

  • over something that costs

  • less than one u.s. dollar.

  • Talk about much ado about nothing.

  • Yes. So we all used to talk about to

  • emphasize something like, you know, talk

  • about cheap, talk about stupid, meaning

  • that this is a perfect example of this situation.

  • So much ado about nothing. Too much

  • screaming, complaining and fuss about

  • something that's not really that

  • big a deal. You know, life is, why you know,

  • life is too important.

  • We shouldn't be fussing over about this small stuff.

  • Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it.

  • I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye bye
