Hamlet: Act 1 Scene 4
Enter HAMLET, HORATIO, and MARCELLUS HAMLET
The air bites shrewdly; it is very cold.
It is a nipping and an eager air.
Fìya länngu wew sì --- nìtxan.
What hour now?
Pehrr lu set?
I think it lacks of twelve.
Fpìl oel futa srekamtxon.
No, it is struck.
Kehe, srekrr kxamtxonmaw
Indeed? I heard it not: then it draws near the season

Wherein the spirit held his wont to walk.

A flourish of trumpets, and ordnance shot off, within
What does this mean, my lord?
Peu fì'uä ral lu, ma lortì?
The king doth wake to-night and takes his rouse,
'eyktan fìtxon txen sayi ulte ---
Keeps wassail, and the swaggering up-spring reels;
var näk, ulte ---
And, as he drains his draughts of Rhenish down,
The kettle-drum and trumpet thus bray out
The triumph of his pledge.
Is it a custom?

Ay, marry, is't:
Sran nang! lu:
But to my mind, though I am native here
Slä tì'efumì oey, --- oe lu fìtseng ---
And to the manner born, it is a custom

They clepe us drunkards, and with swinish phrase
Fo awngar syängaw aynäkyu, ulte fa tìpeng lezoplo
Soil our addition; and indeed it takes

From our achievements, though perform'd at height,
Ta awngeyä sìkan ahasey, ki hasey soli fa
The pith and marrow of our attribute.

As, in their birth--wherein they are not guilty,
Na, krr a 'ongolokx -- a krr fo ke lu ---,
Since nature cannot choose his origin--

Carrying, I say, the stamp of one defect,
lu, sìk oe peng san ’awa tìngäzìk akawng sìk
Being nature's livery, or fortune's star,--

Their virtues else--be they as pure as grace,
Feyä lahea sìtstunvi -- ke tsranten fya’o a ngay sa’u lu,
As infinite as man may undergo--

Wherein we saw thee quietly inurn'd,
Tseng a mì fum hahaw nga nìfnu a fì’ut tsole’a pxoel,
Hath oped his ponderous and marble jaws,

To cast thee up again. What may this mean,
Fte nìmun lam fkoru. Peu tsun tsakemä ral livu
That thou, dead corse, again in complete steel

Revisit'st thus the glimpses of the moon,
Frrfen nìmun atanit tsmukanä ’Rrtayä,
Making night hideous; and we fools of nature
Ngerop txonit letxopu; ulte a pxoe, pxeskxawng kifkeyä
So horridly to shake our disposition
Tung livatem pxoeyä ---
With thoughts beyond the reaches of our souls?
Fa sìfpìl a alìm nì’ul to pxoeyä vitra tsun kivä?
Say, why is this? wherefore? what should we do?
Peng, pelun fì’u lu? Lumpe? Pehem zìvene pxoe sivi?
Ghost beckons HAMLET
It beckons you to go away with it,
As if it some impartment did desire
To you alone.
Look, with what courteous action
It waves you to a more removed ground:
But do not go with it.
No, by no means.
It will not speak; then I will follow it.
Do not, my lord.
Why, what should be the fear?
I do not set my life in a pin's fee;
And for my soul, what can it do to that,
Being a thing immortal as itself?
It waves me forth again: I'll follow it.
What if it tempt you toward the flood, my lord,
Or to the dreadful summit of the cliff
That beetles o'er his base into the sea,
And there assume some other horrible form,
Which might deprive your sovereignty of reason
And draw you into madness? think of it:
The very place puts toys of desperation,
Without more motive, into every brain
That looks so many fathoms to the sea
And hears it roar beneath.
It waves me still.
Go on; I'll follow thee.
You shall not go, my lord.
Hold off your hands.
Be ruled; you shall not go.
My fate cries out,
And makes each petty artery in this body
As hardy as the Nemean lion's nerve.
Still am I call'd. Unhand me, gentlemen.
By heaven, I'll make a ghost of him that lets me!
I say, away! Go on; I'll follow thee.
Exeunt Ghost and HAMLET
He waxes desperate with imagination.
Let's follow; 'tis not fit thus to obey him.
Have after. To what issue will this come?
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Heaven will direct it.
Nay, let's follow him.
