Hamlet act 4 quotes

Gertrude Mad as the sea and wind when both contend which is mightier. In his lawless fit,… In this brainish apprehension kills the unseen good old man
Gertrude O’er whom his very madness, like some ore among a mineral of metals base, shows itself pure. He weeps for what is done
Claudius It had been so with us, had we been there
Claudius The sun no sooner shall the mountains touch, but we will ship him hence: and this vile deed we must with all our majesty and skill, both countenance and excuse
Hamlet That I can keep your counsel and not mine own
Hamlet When he needs what you have gleaned, it is but squeezing you, and, sponge, you shall be dry again
Claudius He’s loved of the distracted multitude
Hamlet Your fat King and your lean begged is but variable service
Hamlet A man may fish with the worm that hath eat of a King and eat of the fish that hath fed of that worm
Hamlet Seek him i’th’ other place yourself
Claudius For all the hectic in my blood he rages
Hamlet How stand I then, to have a father killed, a mother stained, excitements of my reason and my blood, and let all sleep?
Gertrude So full of artless jealousy is guilt, it spills itself, in fearing to be spilt
Claudius O this is the poison of deep grief, it springs all from her fathers death
Claudius The people muddied, thick and unwholesome in their thoughts and whispers for good polonius’ death- and we have done but greenly in hugger-mugger to inter him
Claudius Let him go Gertrude, do not fear our person
Laertes Only I’ll be revenges most throughly for my father
Claudius Why now you speak like a good child and a true gentleman
Claudius That as the star moves not but in his sphere I could not but by her
Laertes But my revenge will come
Claudius Laertes you shall hear them
Claudius There lives within the very flame of love a kind of wick or snuff that will abate it
Claudius Revenge should have no bounds; but good alerted will you do this: keep close within your chamber?
Claudius He being remiss most generous, and free from all contriving, will not peruse the foils, so that, with ease, or with a little shuffling, you may choose a sword unabated, and in a pass of practice require him for your father
