"And there's the humor of it" Shakespeare and the four humors

Shakespeare, by permission of the Folger Shakespeare Library

Blood, bile, melancholy, and phlegm. William Shakespeare (1564–1616) understood human personality in the terms available to his age—that of the now-discarded theory of the four bodily humors. The four humors were thought to define peoples’ physical and mental health, and determined their personalities, as well.
