Here's metal more attractive.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Proverbs]

It is as easy as lying.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Lying]

Let me be cruel, not unnatural;
  I will speak daggers to her, but use none.
    My tongue and soul in this be hypocrites:
      How in my words somever she be shent,
        To give them seals never, my soul, consent!
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Hypocrisy]

Let the galled jade wince; our withers are unwrung.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Proverbs]

Nay then, let the devil wear black, for I'll have a suit of sables.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Devil]

Nay, do not think I flatter.
  For what advancement may I hope from thee,
    That no revenue hast but thy good spirits
      To feed and clothe thee? Why should the poor be flattered?
        No, let the candied tongue like absurd pomp,
          And crook the pregnant hinges of the knee
            Where thrift may follow fawning.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Flattery]

O heavens! die two months ago, and not forgotten yet? Then there's hope a great man's memory may outlive his life half a year.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Memory]

O, there be players that I have seen play, and heard others praise, and that highly (not to speak it profanely), that neither having th' accent of Christians, nor the gait of Christian, pagan, nor man, have so strutted and bellowed that I have thought some of nature's journeymen had made men, and not made them well, they imitated humanity so abominably.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Acting : Man]

Since my dear soul was mistress of her choice
  And could of men distinguish her election,
    S' hath sealed thee for herself, for thou hast been
      As one in suff'ring all that suffers nothing,
        A man that Fortune's buffets and rewards
          Hast ta'en with equal thanks; and blest are those
            Whose blood and judgment are so well commeddled
              That they are not a pipe for Fortune's finger
                To sound what stop she please.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Fortune]

Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue. But if you mouth it, as many of our players do, I had as lief the town crier spoke my lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use it gently, for in the very torrent, tempest, and (as I may say) the whirlwind of passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Acting]

Suit the action to the word, the word to the action, with this special observance, that you o'erstep not the modesty of nature.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Acting : Action]

The great man down, you mark his favorite flies,
  The poor advanced makes friends of enemies;
    And hitherto doth love on fortune tend,
      For who not needs shall never lack a friend,
        And who in want a hollow friend doth try,
          Directly seasons him his enemy.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (King at III, ii)
        [Fortune : Friends]

The instances that second marriage move
  Are base respects of thrift, but none of love.
    A second time I kill my husband dead
      When second husband kisses me in bed.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Gertrude, Queen of Denmark at III, ii)
        [Matrimony]

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Gertrude, Queen of Denmark at III, ii)
        [Protest]

They fool me to the top of my bent.--I will come by and by.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Deceit]

This world is not for aye, nor 'tis not strange
  That even our loves should with our fortunes change,
    For 'tis a question left us yet to prove,
      Whether love lead fortune, or else fortune love.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (King at III, ii)
        [Change]

'Tis now the very witching time of night,
  When churchyards yawn, and hell itself breathes out
    Contagion to this world.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Night]

To saw the air.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Proverbial Phrases]

What should a man do but be merry? For look you how cheerfully my mother looks, and my father died within's two hours.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Merriment]

What to ourselves in passion we propose,
  The passion ending, doth the purpose lose.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at III, ii)
        [Passion]

Where love is great, the littlest doubts are fear;
  Where little fears grow great, great love grows there.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Gertrude, Queen of Denmark at III, ii)
        [Love]

You would play upon me, you would seem to know my stops, you would pluck out the heart of my mystery, you would sound me from my lowest note to the top of my compass; and there is much music, excellent voice, in this little organ, yet cannot you make it speak.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii) [Music]

'A took my father grossly, full of bread,
  With all his crimes broad blown, as flush as May;
    And how his audit stands, who knows save heaven?
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, iii) [Murder]

Bow, stubborn knees, and, heart with strings of steel,
  Be soft as sinews of the new-born babe.
    All many be well.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at III, iii)
        [Prayer]

In the corrupted currents of this world
  Offense's gilded hand may shove by justice,
    And oft 'tis seen the wicked prize itself
      Buys out the law. But 'tis not so above.
        There is no shuffling; there the action lies
          In his true nature, and we ourselves compelled,
            Even to the teeth and forehead of our faults,
              To give in evidence.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at III, iii)
        [Law]
