#5   "We are such stuff as dreams are made on and our little life is rounded with a sleep..." (A good nap does sound quite tempting.)

#14   "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark." (An amulet is meant to protect you.)

#15   "Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble." (You won't find this on the McDonald's menu.)

#16   "To sleep, perchance to dream- ay, there's the rub." (I live in a settlement smaller than a town.)

#17   "Why, then the world's mine oyster, Which I with sword will open." (One must be merry to open an oyster with a sword.)

#18   "If music be the food of love, play on; Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die." (The night is young and there is time to go out to eat.)

#19   "Cowards die many times before their deaths, The valiant never taste of death but once." (Do not be afraid to seize the moment.)

#20   "Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em." (There are many ways greatness can be counted.)
