GUILDASTERN
Happy, in that we are not over-happy;
On fortune’s cap we are not the very button.

HAMLET
Nor the soles of her shoe?

ROSACRANTZ
Neither, my lord.

HAMLET
Then you live about her waist, or in the middle of
her favours?

GUILDASTERN
‘Faith, her privates we.

HAMLET
In the secret parts of fortune? O, most true; she
is a strumpet.

ROSACRANTZ
Why then, your ambition makes it one; ’tis too
narrow for your mind.

LEGO Hamlet

ROSACRANTZ
Truly, and I hold ambition of so airy and light a
quality that it is but a shadow’s shadow.

ROSACRANTZ
To what end, my lord?

HAMLET
That you must teach me. But let me conjure you, by
the rights of our fellowship, by the consonancy of
our youth, by the obligation of our ever-preserved
love, and by what more dear a better proposer could
charge you withal, be even and direct with me,
whether you were sent for, or no?

HAMLET
He that plays the king shall be welcome; his majesty
shall have tribute of me; the adventurous knight
shall use his foil and target; the lover shall not
sigh gratis; the humourous man shall end his part
in peace; the clown shall make those laugh whose
lungs are tickled o’ the sere; and the lady shall
say her mind freely, or the blank verse shall halt
for’t. What players are they?

ROSACRANTZ
Even those you were wont to take delight in, the
tragedians of the city.

HAMLET
How chances it they travel? their residence, both
in reputation and profit, was better both ways.

ROSACRANTZ
I think their inhibition comes by the means of the
late innovation.

ROSACRANTZ
Nay, their endeavour keeps in the wonted pace: but
there is, sir, an aery of children, little eyases,
that cry out on the top of question, and are most
tyrannically clapped for’t: these are now the
fashion, and so berattle the common stages–so they
call them–that many wearing rapiers are afraid of
goose-quills and dare scarce come thither.

HAMLET
What, are they children? who maintains ’em? how are
they escoted? Will they pursue the quality no
longer than they can sing? will they not say
afterwards, if they should grow themselves to common
players–as it is most like, if their means are no
better–their writers do them wrong, to make them
exclaim against their own succession?

ROSACRANTZ
‘Faith, there has been much to do on both sides; and
the nation holds it no sin to tarre them to
controversy: there was, for a while, no money bid
for argument, unless the poet and the player went to
cuffs in the question.

LEGO Hamlet

HAMLET
Do the boys carry it away?

ROSACRANTZ
Ay, that they do, my lord; Hercules and his load too.
