"Enter HAMLET.
Ham. To be, or no to be, -- that is the question: --
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
 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 heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks.
The 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 my come, when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, must give us pause; there's the respect that makes calamity of so long life; time for who would bear the whips and scorns of the oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, the pangs of disposed 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 fardels bear, 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 that fly to others that we know not of? 
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, and lose the name of action.-- Soft you now! The fair Ophelia.--Nymph, in thy orisons be all my sins remembered."

"We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep."

William Shakespeare as quoted in the preface of 'The Complete Works of William Shakespeare', page VI, first published in 1958 by Spring Books, London
