A Sunlight-Activated Installation in a Las Vegas Building

Check out this installation made by DAKU, an anonymous artist from India. The installation, which is a quote from William Shakespeare, is activated by the sun; as the latter casts light on the installation, shadows are cast, and the quote appears.

The somewhat decontextualized phrase could reflect on time in general, or perhaps life itself. As the sun shifts throughout the day and casts its shifting shadows, the message appears and disappears, with the physical white letters blending into the building.

This is only one of the many time and light-activated installations of DAKU, which he refers to, collectively, as “Time Changes Everything.”

Please cite where Shakespeare wrote the above quote.
I do recall a piece by Henry Van Dyke (1852-1933), which goes:
“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear,too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”
