# It's curious how the phrase "to sleep, perchance to dream" is so often used in the wrong context. I suppose it's a good soundbite. Hamlet says this during the "to be or not to be" soliloquy but he is actually talking about the release of death - likely by suicide - and that not even this may release him from his mental anguish:

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.

Ay, there's the rub indeed.
