To die: to sleep;<br />No more; and by a sleep to say we end<br />The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks<br />That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation<br />Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;<br />To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;<br />For in that sleep of death what dreams may come<br />When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,<br />Must give us pause: there's the respect<br />That makes calamity of so long life;<br />For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,<br />The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,<br />The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,<br />The insolence of office and the spurns<br />That patient merit of the unworthy takes,<br />When he himself might his quietus make<br />With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,<br />To grunt and sweat under a weary life,<br />But that the dread of something after death,<br />The undiscover'd country from whose bourn<br />No traveller returns, puzzles the will<br />And makes us rather bear those ills we have<br />Than fly to others that we know not of?<br />Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;<br />And thus the native hue of resolution<br />Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,<br />And enterprises of great pith and moment<br />With this regard their currents turn awry,<br />And lose the name of action.<br /><ul><li>Life or death?
