Famous Quote of William Shakespeare

"To suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune."

In William Shakespeare's play "Hamlet" Hamlet, the main character, is suffering from his fatal flaw, indecision. Before Hamlet enters the castle room, Polonius and the king, Cladius are discussing why Hamlet appears insane. They believe Hamlet is mad in love with Ophelia and is acting strange for this reason. "I hear him coming" they hid so he will act natural and let Ophelia stand out so Hamlet can see her. This is when Hamlet ponders whether "To be or not to be" his indecision shows. He ways the options whether to pursue with seeking revenge for the death of his father, or "to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune." The religious society of Hamlet's time believes is it right to suffer in silence, that this act will reap reward. Hamlet decides to kill Cladius, but backs away and eventually kills Polonius, this turn of events comes from this decision
