There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
  Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Hamlet at I, v)

There needs no ghost, my lord, come from the grave
  To tell us this.

Thus was I sleeping by a brother's hand
  Of life, of crown, of queen at once dispatched,
    Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin,
      Unhouseled, disappointed, unaneled,
        No reck'ning made, but sent to my account
          With all my imperfections on my head.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Ghost at I, v)
        [Death]

See you now--
  Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth,
    And thus do we of wisdom and of reach,
      With windlasses and with assays of bias,
        By indirections find directions out.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at II, i) [Lying]

This is the very ecstasy of love,
  Whose violent property fordoes itself
    And leads the will to desperate undertakings
      As oft as any passion under heaven
        That does afflict our natures.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at II, i) [Love]

Your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth,
  And thus do we of wisdom and of reach,
    With windlasses and with assays of bias,
      By indirections find directions out.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at II, i) [Bait]

'A is far gone, far gone. And truly in my youth I suffered much extremity for love, very near this.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark

After your death you were better have a bad epitaph than their ill report while you live.

Ay, sir. To be honest, as this world goes, is to be one man picked out of ten thousand.

         (Hamlet at II, ii) [Acting]

I have heard that guilty creatures sitting at a play,
  Have by the very cunning of the scene,
    Been struck so to the soul that presently
      They have proclaimed their malefactions;
        For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak
          With most miraculous organ.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at II, ii) [Acting]

I have of late--but wherefore I know not--lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame the earth seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire--why, it appeareth nothing to me but a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at II, ii) [Sky]

I heard thee speak me a speech once, but it was never acted, or if it was, not above once, for the play, I remember, pleased not the million; 'twas caviary to the general, but it was (as I received it, and others, whose judgments in such matters cried in the top of mine) an excellent play, well digested in the scenes, set down with as much modesty as cunning.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at II, ii) [Public]

Is it not monstrous that this player here,
  But in a fiction, in a dream of passion,
    Could force his soul so to his own conceit
      That from her working all his visage wann'd, . . .
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at II, ii) [Acting]

Mad let us grant him them, and now remains
  That we find out the cause of this effect--
    Or rather say, the cause of this defect,
      For this effect defective comes by cause.
        Thus it remains, and the remainder thus.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at II, ii) [Cause]

Madam, I swear I use no art at all.
  That he is mad, 'tis true: 'tis true 'tis pity,
    And pity 'tis 'tis true--a foolish figure.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Polonius at II, ii) [Insanity]
