Does it work?

Enter Hamlet.

  • HamletTo be, or not to be- that is the question: 
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer 1750
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune 
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, 
    And by opposing end them. To die- to sleep- 
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end 
    The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks 1755
    That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation 
    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die- to sleep. 
    To sleep- perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub! 
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come 
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, 1760
    Must give us pause. There's the respect 
    That makes calamity of so long life. 
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, 
    Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, 
    The pangs of despis'd love, the law's delay, 1765
    The insolence of office, and the spurns 
    That patient merit of th' unworthy takes, 
    When he himself might his quietus make 
    With a bare bodkin? Who would these fardels bear, 
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life, 1770
    But that the dread of something after death- 
    The undiscover'd country, from whose bourn 
    No traveller returns- puzzles the will, 
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have 
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
