1505
    While one with moderate haste might tell a hundred.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 2.
1506
    Ham. His beard was grizzled,—no?
Hor. It was, as I have seen it in his life,
A sable silver’d.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 2.
1507
    Let it be tenable in your silence still.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 2.
1508
    Give it an understanding, but no tongue.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 2.
1509
    Upon the platform, ’twixt eleven and twelve.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 2.
1510
    Foul deeds will rise,
Though all the earth o’erwhelm them, to men’s eyes.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 2.
1511
    A violet in the youth of primy nature,
Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting,
The perfume and suppliance of a minute.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.
1512
    The chariest maid is prodigal enough,
If she unmask her beauty to the moon:
Virtue itself ’scapes not calumnious strokes:
The canker galls the infants of the spring
Too oft before their buttons be disclosed,
And in the morn and liquid dew of youth
Contagious blastments are most imminent.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.
1513
    Do not, as some ungracious pastors do,
Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven;
Whiles, like a puff’d and reckless libertine,
Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads,
And recks not his own rede. 1
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.
1514
    Give thy thoughts no tongue.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.
1515
    Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.
Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops 2 of steel.
          Hamlet. Act i. Sc. 3.
 
Note 1.
And may you better reck the rede,
Than ever did the adviser.
Robert Burns: Epistle to a Young Friend. [back]
Note 2.
”Hooks” in Singer. [back]
