    The dread of something after death,
    The undiscovered country from whose bourn
    No traveller returns.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I have full cause of weeping, but this heart
    Shall break into a hundred thousand flaws
    Or ere I’ll weep.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Sleep shall neither night nor day
    Hang upon his penthouse lid;
    He shall live a man forbid;
    Weary sev’n-nights, nine times nine,
    Shall he dwindle, peak and pine;
    Though his bark cannot be lost,
    Yet it shall be tempest-tossed.
    —William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
