But I have that within which passeth show;
These, but the trappings and the suits of woe.

Act i. Sc. 2. O that this too, too solid flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the everlasting had not fixed His canon 'gainst self-slaughter! O God! O God ! How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable Seem to me all the uses of this world!

That it should come to this!

Hyperion to a satyr! so loving to my mother,
That he might not beteem the winds of heaven
Visit her face too roughly.

Why, she would hang on him,
As if increase of appetite had grown
By what it fed on.

[ocr errors]

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not expressed in fancy; rich, not gaudy;
For the apparel oft proclaims the man.

Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
For loan oft loses both itself and friend ;
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

Act i. Sc. 3. Springes to catch woodcocks.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

Act i. Sc. 5.
I could a tale unfold, whose lightest word
Would harrow up thy soul; freeze thy young

Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres ;

And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon the fretful Porcupine.

Doubt truth to be a liar;

But never doubt I love.

Act ii. Sc. 2.
Though this be madness, yet there's method in it.
