Peter: What is that sound I hear?
Patrick: I don't hear anything. [He listens.] I hear it now. It's like cheering. [He goes to the window and looks out.] I wonder what they are cheering about. I don't see anybody.

Wherein he puts alms for oblivion,
A great-sized monster of ingratitudes.

Not decked with diamonds and Indian stones,
Nor to be seen: my crown is called content:
A crown it is that seldom kings enjoy.

King Henry: But if it be a sin to covet honor,
I am the most offending soul alive.
Hamlet: To be, or not to be: that is the question.
