Hamlet's "To Be or Not To Be"

jopocapi's version from 2018-03-09 18:32

Section 1

Question Answer
A1To be, or not to be: that is the question:
A2Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
A3The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
A4Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
A5And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep:
A6No more: and by a sleep to say we end
A7The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
A8That flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
A9Devoutly to be wish’d. To Die, To sleep

Section 2

Question Answer
B1To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
B2For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
B3When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
B4Must give us pause; there’s the respect
B5That makes calamity of so long life;
B6For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
B7The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
B8The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
B9The insolence of office and the spurns
B10That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
B11When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin?

Section 3

Question Answer
C1who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
C2But that the dread of something after death,
C3The undiscover’d country from whose bourn
C4No traveller returns, puzzles the will
C5And makes us rather bear those ills we have
C6Than fly to others that we know not of?

Section 4

Question Answer
D1Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
D2And thus the native hue of resolution
D3Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
D4And enterprises of great pith and moment
D5With this regard their currents turn awry,
D6And lose the name of action.
