    • Queen Gertrude: The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

    • Hamlet: Frailty, thy name is woman!

    • Hamlet: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    • Hamlet: 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 majestical roof fretted with golden fire - why, it appeareth no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! how infinite in faculties! in form and moving, how express and admirable! in action, how like an angel! in apprehension, how like a god! the beauty of the world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me - no, nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.
