Hamlet Scene 3

“For Hamlet, and the trifling of his favor, Hold it a fashion and a toy in blood, A violet in the youth of prime nature, Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting, The perfume and suppliance of a minute, No more” said by: Laertes As he prepares to depart, he gives advice to his sister to stay away from Hamlet. He insists that it is merely an infatuation, which will pass.
“Grows wide withal. Perhaps he loves you now. And now no soil nor cattle doth besmirch The virtue of his will; but you must fear, His greatness weighed, his will is not his own, [For he himself is subject to his birth]” said by: Laertes He is a prince, he can’t choose his marriage
“Neither a borrower nor a lender be: For loan oft loses both itself and friend, And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. This above all: to thine own self be true, And it shall follow as night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.” Said by: PoloniusAdvice given by Polonius to Laertes, he then forbids Ophelia to talk or see Prince Hamlet
