If thou art privy to thy country's fate, Which happily foreknowing may avoid, O, speak! Now, one has killed the other, and she's crazy. Why, she would hang on him As if increase of appetite had grown By what it fed on; and yet, within a month- Let me not think on't! Sure he that made us with such large discourse, Looking before and after, gave us not That capability and godlike reason To fust in us unus'd.
O, it offends me to the soul to hear a robustious periwig-pated fellow tear a passion to tatters, to very rags, to split the cars of the groundlings, who for the most part are capable of nothing but inexplicable dumb shows and noise. Give him heedful note; For I mine eyes will rivet to his face, And after we will both our judgments join In censure of his seeming. But before she finishes singing the song, Ophelia passes out flowers. Thus was I, sleeping, by a brother's hand Of life, of crown, of queen, at once dispatch'd; Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin, Unhous'led, disappointed, unanel'd, No reckoning made, but sent to my account With all my imperfections on my head.

Hamlet - Alas, poor Yorick! Who does me this, ha? The play's the thing Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King. O, most wicked speed, to post With such dexterity to incestuous sheets! See what a grace was seated on this brow; Hyperion's curls; the front of Jove himself; An eye like Mars, to threaten and command; A station like the herald Mercury New lighted on a heaven-kissing hill: A combination and a form, indeed, Where every god did seem to set his seal, To give the world assurance of a man; This was your husband. If I were a woman I would kiss as many of you as had beards that pleased me, complexions that liked me and breaths that I defied not: and, I am sure, as many as have good beards or good faces or sweet breaths will, for my kind offer, when I make curtsy, bid me farewell.

Fear it, Ophelia, fear it, my dear sister, And keep you in the rear of your affection, Out of the shot and danger of desire.
Yes, that was the problem, because in that sleep of death the dreams we might have when we have shed this mortal body must make us pause. Look to't, I charge you. The balance continues with a consideration of the way one deals with life and death. So oft it chances in particular men That, for some vicious mole of nature in them, As in their birth,- wherein they are not guilty, Since nature cannot choose his origin,- By the o'ergrowth of some complexion, Oft breaking down the pales and forts of reason, Or by some habit that too much o'erleavens The form of plausive manners, that these men Carrying, I say, the stamp of one defect, Being nature's livery, or fortune's star, Their virtues else- be they as pure as grace, As infinite as man may undergo- Shall in the general censure take corruption From that particular fault. Or that the Everlasting had not fix'd His canon 'gainst self-slaughter! Always aiming for clarity and clear intentions with every line.

That cannot be; since I am still possess'd Of those effects for which I did the murder- My crown, mine own ambition, and my queen. Rebellious hell, If thou canst mutine in a matron's bones, To flaming youth let virtue be as wax And melt in her own fire. Hamlet - Now might I do it pat, now he is praying; And now I'll do't.
