          Hamlet. Act ii. Sc. 2.

    This goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. 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!
          Hamlet. Act ii. Sc. 2.

    Come, give us a taste of your quality.
          Hamlet. Act ii. Sc. 2.

    The play, I remember, pleased not the million; ’t was caviare to the general.
          Hamlet. Act ii. Sc. 2.

    They are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time: after your death you were better have a bad epitaph than their ill report while you live.
          Hamlet. Act ii. Sc. 2.
1571
    Use every man after his desert, and who should ’scape whipping?
          Hamlet. Act ii. Sc. 2.

That he should weep for her?
