Do you consent we shall acquaint him with it, As needful in our loves, fitting our duty? A room of state in the castle. For all, our thanks. So much for him.
Now for ourself and for this time of meeting: Thus much the business is: Farewell, and let your haste commend your duty. You cannot speak of reason to the Dane, And loose your voice: The head is not more native to the heart, The hand more instrumental to the mouth, Than is the throne of Denmark to thy father.
What wouldst thou have, Laertes? I do beseech you, give him leave to go. Do not for ever with thy vailed lids Seek for thy noble father in the dust: But I have that within which passeth show; These but the trappings and the suits of woe.

For your intent In going back to school in Wittenberg, It is most retrograde to our desire: And we beseech you, bend you to remain Here, in the cheer and comfort of our eye, Our chiefest courtier, cousin, and our son. I pray thee, stay with us; go not to Wittenberg. Be as ourself in Denmark.
Madam, come; This gentle and unforced accord of Hamlet Sits smiling to my heart: How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable, Seem to me all the uses of this world! That it should come to this! But two months dead: So excellent a king; that was, to this, Hyperion to a satyr; so loving to my mother That he might not beteem the winds of heaven Visit her face too roughly.
Ere yet the salt of most unrighteous tears Had left the flushing in her galled eyes, She married. O, most wicked speed, to post With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!
