part 4. two roads diverged in a wood.

To be nippled or to be nippleless — that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of uneven nipples,

And by opposing end them? Nipplelessness: to sleep;

Knotted nipples no more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

That mangled flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish’d. Nipplelessness, to sleep;

To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;

For in that sleep of nipplelessness what dreams may come

When we have abandoned these distorted points,

Must give us pause: there’s the respect

That makes calamity of such a life;

For who would bear the whips and scorns of monster teats,

The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,

The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,

The insolence of office and the spurns

That patient merit of the unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make

With an electric shaver? who would ogre-nipples bear,

To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

But that the dread of something after nipples,

The undiscover’d country from whose bosom

No traveller returns, puzzles the will

And makes us rather bear those nipples we have

Than fly to nipplelessness that we know not of?

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;

And thus the native hue of resolution

Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of nippled thought,

And enterprises of great pith and moment

With this regard their currents turn awry,

And lose the name of action. – Soft you now!

The fair Athelia! Nymph, in thy orisons

Be all my rotten nipples remember’d.
