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!
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
