And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

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 heartache, and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to—'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die—to sleep—
To sleep! perchance, to dream—ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us  pause."
           ~ Hamlet, Act III, Sc. 1.

But that the dread of something after death—
The undiscovered country, from whose bourne

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all"
