    As I read it i can now see it.There's the respect that makes
    calamity of so long a life; for who would bear the whips and
    scorns of time, the oppressor's wrong, the proud man's
    contumely, the pangs of dispriz'd love, the law's delay, the
    insolence of office, and the spurns that patient merit of
    the unworthy takes, when he himself might his quietus make
    with a bare bodkin? Who would trade farts with bears, to
    grunt and sweat under a weary life, 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?
