"The aim of this book is to help students to learn the general principles of psychology.

الصفحة 251 - To sleep ? perchance to dream ; — ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of Death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause ! There's the respect That makes calamity of so long life : For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office, and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes...

Who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscovered country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not...
الصفحة 250 - Jane ? — for my mother was so afraid that we had not any salting-pan large enough. So I said I would go down and see, and Jane said, ' Shall I go down instead ? for I think you have a little cold, and Patty has been washing the kitchen.
الصفحة 93 - They are neither : no one of them is separate, but each belongs with certain others and with none beside. My thought belongs with my other thoughts, and your thought with your other thoughts.
