Rightly to be great
  Is not to stir without great argument,
    But greatly to find a quarrel in a straw
      When honor's at the stake.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at IV, iv) [Quarreling]

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 unused.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at IV, iv) [Reason]

What is a man,
  If his chief good and market of his time
    Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more.
      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 unused.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at IV, iv) [Idleness : Man]

And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark

And where the offense is, let the great axe fall.

Come, my coach! Good night, ladies, good night. Sweet ladies, good night, good night.

For bonny sweet Robin is all my joy.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Ophelia at IV, v) [Joy]

Pray you, love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Ophelia at IV, v) [Pansies]

So full of artless jealousy is guilt
  It spills itself in fearing to be spilt.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark

There's fennel for you, and columbines.
  There's rue for you, and here's some for me.

There's rosemary, that's for remembrance.

There's such divinity doth hedge a king

    Acts little of his will.

They bore him barefaced on the bier

To-morrow is Saint Valentine's day.

    And I a maid at your window,
      To be your Valentine.

When sorrows come, they come not single spies,
  But in battalions.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, v)
        [Proverbs : Sorrow]

When sorrows come, they come not single spies,
  But in battalions: first, her father slain;
    Next, your son gone, and he most violent author
      Of his own just remove; the people muddied,
        Thick and unwholesome in their thoughts and whispers
          For good Polonius' death, and we have done but greenly
            In hugger-mugger to inter him; poor Ophelia
              Divided from herself and her fair judgment,
                Without the which we are pictures or mere beasts;
                  Last, and as much containing as all these,
                    Her brother is in secret come from France,
                      Feeds on his wonder, keeps himself in clouds,
                        And wants not buzzers to infect his ear
                          With pestilent speeches of his father's death,
                            Wherein necessity, of matter beggared,
                              Will nothing stick our person to arraign
                                In ear and ear.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, v)
        [Proverbs : Sorrow]

A very riband in the cap of youth,
  Yet needful too, for youth no less becomes
    The light and careless livery that it wears
      Than settled age his sables and his weeds,
        Importing health and graveness.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, vii)
        [Youth]

I bought an unction of a mountebank,
  So mortal that, but dip a knife in it,
    Where it draws blood so cataplasm so rare,
      Collected from all simples that have virtue
        Under the moon, can save the thing from death
          That is but scratched withal. I'll touch my point
            With this contagion, that, if I gall him slightly,
              It may be death.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Laertes at IV, vii) [Medicine : Quackery]

No place indeed should murder sanctuarize;
  Revenge should have no bounds.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, vii)
        [Murder]

One woe doth tread upon another's heel,
  So fast they follow.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Gertrude, Queen of Denmark at IV, vii)
        [Proverbs : Woe]

That we would do
  We should do when we would, for this 'would' changes,
    And hath abatements and delays as many
      As there are tongues, are hands, are accidents,
        And then this 'should' is like a spendthrift sigh,
          That hurts by easing.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark (King at IV, vii)
        [Change]

There lives within the very flame of love
  A kind of wick or snuff that will abate it;
    And nothing is at a like goodness still;
      For goodness, growing to a plurisy,
        Dies in his own too-much.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, vii)
        [Goodness]

You must not think
  That we are made of stuff so fat and dull
    That we can let our beard be shook with danger,
      And think it pastime.
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, vii)
        [Courage]

Laertes, was your father dear to you?
  Or are you like the painting of a sorrow,
    A face without a heart?
      - Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV,vii)
        [Face : Sorrow]
