Regarding Shakespearean phrases that have become part of the language:
 
Recently a non-academic friend gave me Richard Lederer's *The Miracle
of Language* which has a chapter titled "A Man of Fire-New Words"
giving an extensive list and commentary on just such phrases.  The
chapter is very short and could easily be photocopied and distributed
to students (if copyright didn't exist, that is).  I hope this helps.

Ms. Earthman:
 
One source for finding popularized phrases from Shakespeare is
Bartlett's.  The recent edition (16th) ed. by Justin Kaplan devotes
pages 163-226 to quotes that have become part of the "common culture."

Ms. Earthman,
 
BARTLETT'S FAMILAR QUOTATIONS should give you more of these than you can stand.
