My liege, and madam, to expostulateWhat majesty should be, what duty is,What day is day, night night, and time is time,Were nothing but to waste night, day, and time;Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit,And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes,I will be brief. Your noble son is mad. . . .

Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 86–92

Why! all delights are vain, but that most vainWhich, with pain purchas'd, doth inherit pain:As, painfully to pore upon a bookTo seek the light of truth, while truth the whileDoth falsely blind the eyesight of his look.Light, seeking light, doth light of light beguile;So ere you find where light in darkness lies,Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes.

Love's Labor's Lost Act 1. scene 1, 72–79
