Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, / Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel (p 17)
Taint not thy mind, nor let thy soul contrive / Against thy mother aught. Leave her to heaven (p 25)
By heaven, it is as proper to our age / To cast beyond ourselves in our opinions / As it is common for the younger sort / To lack discretion. (p. 33)
O, God, I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space were it not that I have bad dreams (p. 40)
What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, 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? (p. 42)

To be, or not to be, that is the question:/Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer / The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,/ Or to take arms against a sea of troubles/ And by opposing end them ...... / Thus conscience does make cowards of us all (the whole soliloquy p 53 - 54)
For anything so overdone is from the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the first and now, was and is, to hold, as 'twere, the mirror up to nature, to show virtue her own feature, scorn her own image, and the very age and body of the time his form and pressure. ( p. 57)
O my offence is rank, it smells to heaven/ It hath the primal eldest curse upon't,/ a brother's murder (p. 69)
What is a man,/ If his chief good and market of his time/ Be but to sleep and feed? A beast , no more. (p 85).
O heavens, is't possible a young maid's wits/ Should be as mortal as an old man's life? (p. 91)
Ther is a willow grows aslant a brook,/ That shows his hoary leaves in the glassy stream (p100)
Now cracks a noble heart. Good night sweet prince,/ And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest. (p. 120)
