Thoughts on Hamlet Part Two

My dad has been saying, "Every dog has its day to bark," ever since I could remember. I had no idea he was quoting from Hamlet. “The cat will mew, and dog will have his day.”

Why did Polonious send someone to spy on Laertes?? Was he just trying to show that Laertes wasn't as noble as everyone thought? It seemed so random.

My favorite line: “If it be now, ‘tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come. The readiness is all.” Hamlet's talking about death. It is a profound truth that "the readiness is all." That's the only part of it that is under our control.
