'A was a man, take him for all in all,
  I shall not look upon his like again.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Man]

All is not well.
  I doubt some foul play. Would the night were come!
    Till then sit still, my soul. Foul deeds will rise,
      Though all the earth o'erwhelm them, to men's eyes.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Crime : Suspicion]

Do not for ever with thy vailed lids
  Seek for thy noble father in the dust.
    Thou know'st 'tis common. All that lives must die,
      Passing through nature to eternity.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Gertrude, Queen of Denmark at I, ii)
        [Death]

Frailty, thy name is woman.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Frailty]

I pray you all,
  If you have hitherto concealed this sight,
    Let it be tenable in your silence still.
      And whatsoever else shall hap to-night,
        Give it an understanding but no tongue.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Secrecy]

In my mind's eye, Horatio.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Imagination]

O God,
  How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable
    Seem to me all the uses of this world!
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [World]

O that this too too sullied flesh would melt,
  Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew,
    Or that the Everlasting had not fixed
      His canon 'gainst self-slaughter.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Despair]

Season your admiration for a while
  With an attent ear. . . .
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Horatio at I, ii) [Admiration]

Seems, madam? Nay, it is. I know not 'seems.'
  'Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,
    Nor customary suits of solemn black.
      Nor windy suspiration of forced breath.
        No, nor the fruitful river in the eye,
          Nor the dejected haviour of the visage,
            Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief,
              That can denote me truly. These indeed seem,
                For they are actions that a man might play,
                  But I have that within which passeth show--
                    These but the trappings and the suits of woe.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Mourning]

That it should come to this,
  But two months dead, nay, not so much, not two,
    So excellent a king, that was 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. Heaven and earth,
            Must I remember? 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; frailty, thy name is woman--
                    A little month, or ere those shoes were old
                      With which she followed my poor father's body
                        Like Niobe, all tears, why she, even she--
                          O God, a beast that wants discourse of reason
                            Would have mourned longer--married with my uncle,
                              My father's brother, but no more like my father
                                Than I to Hercules.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Frailty : Motherhood : Women]

Therefore our sometime sister, now our queen,
  Th' imperial jointress to this warlike state,
    Have we, as 'twere with a defeated joy,
      With an auspicious and a dropping eye,
        With mirth in funeral and with dirge in marriage,
          In equal scale weighing delight and dole,
            Taken to wife.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at I, ii)
        [Deceit]

Though yet of Hamlet our dear brother's death
  The memory be green, and that it us befitted
    To bear our hearts in grief, and our whole kingdom
      To be contracted in one brow of woe,
        Yet so far hath discretion fought with nature
          That we with wisest sorrow think on him
            Together with remembrance of ourselves.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at I, ii)
        [Memory]

To persevere
  In obstinate condolement is a course
    Of impious stubbornness: 'tis unmanly grief.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at I, ii)
        [Proverbs]

Two nights together had these gentlemen,
  Marcellus and Bernardo, on their watch
    In the dead waste and middle of the night
      Been thus encountered.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Horatio at I, ii) [Night]

We ne'er shall look upon his like again.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Proverbs]

Within a month,
  Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears
    Had left the flushing in her galled eyes,
      She married.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, ii)
        [Matrimony]

And in the morn and liquid dew of youth,
  Contagious blastments are are most imminent.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Laertes at I, iii) [Proverbs]

Ay, springes to catch woodcocks. I do know,
  When the blood burns, how prodigal the soul
    Lends the tongue vows.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii) [Vows]

Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii) [Familiarity]

Be wary then; best safety lies in fear.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Laertes at I, iii) [Fear]

Beware
  Of entrance to a quarrel.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii) [Proverbs]

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
  But not expressed in fancy; rich, not gaudy,
    For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
      And they in France of the best rank and station
        Are of a most select and generous chief in that.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii) [Apparel]

Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice;
  Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii) [Judgment : Proverbs]

Give thy thoughts no tongue.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at I, iii) [Proverbs]
