    I find the words spoken by Hamlet, Act 3 Scene 1 to be so profound !

    To reflect upon my life and experience I think -How eternal this is in that it applies to life today after all these centuries as an accurate depiction of life.

    Someone once stated this is a depressive statement.
    I don’t agree.
    I think it just so real and deep in thought to reflect with ones own soul about the realities of everyday life.

    While Hamlet was upset, I do not think he was really depressed as much as reflective and upset about life as he reflected upon his disappointment in so much.
