A Quote by William Shakespeare on hamlet, heaven, and ophelia

Do not, as some ungracious pastors do, Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven, Whiles, like a puff'd and reckless libertine, Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads. And recks not his own rede.


- Ophelia

He is the half part of a blessed man,
Left to be finished by such as she;
And she a fair divided excellence,
Whose fullness of perfection lies in him.

Give sorrow words;
the grief that does not speak
whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.
