Quotes from Hamlet :

Cut off even in the blossoms of my sin.

  • Ghost, scene v

The time is out of joint; O cursed spite,
That ever I was born to set it right!

  • Hamlet

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

  • Hamlet, scene v

Beggar that I am, I am even poor in thanks.

  • Hamlet, scene ii
