Hamlet :Acts 4 & 5

Now, get you to my lady’s chamber, and tell her, let her paint an inch thick, to this favor she must come. Quote is spoken by Hamlet as he analyzes Yorick’s skull. Literal meaning: Tell women that no matter how much make-up or effort they put into their appearance, they will still die and look just like the skull in his hand.
There’s a rough divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will. Hamlet; There is a fate/divine power that controls our life and its outcome regardless how we try to change it.
We defy augury. There is special providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be now, yet it will come. The readiness is all. Since no man has aught of what he leaves, what is’t to leave betimes? Hamlet; If we are meant to die–and we are prepared to die–what does it matter when we die? We must always be ready. ~There is an acceptance of fate/death within these lines. Sometimes seen as an element of foreshadowing.
