Hamlet “To be or not to be” soliloquy

What is the first line of the soliloquy? To be, or not to be, that is the question
To be, or not to be, that is the question Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles And by opposing end them? To die, to sleep
And by opposing end them? To die, to sleep No more-and by a sleep to say we end
No more-and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation
That flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come When we have shuffled off this mortal coil
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil Must give us pause
