    • Hamlet. To 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? 1775
      Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
      And thus the native hue of resolution
      Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
      And enterprises of great pith and moment
      With this regard their currents turn awry 1780
      And lose the name of action.- Soft you now!
      The fair Ophelia!- Nymph, in thy orisons
      Be all my sins rememb’red.
    Song- "Mid-Night Hour" Talib Kwali ft. Estelle (2010; 4:39)
