Of course 'Hamlet' is a debate about the nature and morality of revenge and whether it is right to do something to assuage your angry feelings.
My personal feelings are my personal feelings. I don't want to express them with anyone except for a very few people. It doesn't do any good. It really doesn't.

I've suffered too much to hide my feelings.
I've always had bizarre, negative feelings about anything traditional, like marriage and family. I never thought something like that worked.

William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
