O Lord, Lord! It is a hard matter for friends to meet … Oh my God, my God! How hard is it to meet friends … William Shakespeare The author of this note is not a professional Shakespeare scholars, and therefore does not know how long researchers and readers spent on it to hear the harmony of motives and sentiments in Sonnet 66 by William Shakespeare and in the monologue "To be or not to be" in his tragedy "Hamlet." Therefore, the author does not undertake to even guess how long these people will need to ensure that certain motifs of the same tragedy in the Shakespearean sonnet catch 44. Instead of Shakespeare the author know why the English were not able to this century, hear, and in translating Shakespeare into Russian knows that it interferes with hear the Russian readers. In the language of Shakespeare's sonnet 44 it goes like this: If the dull substance of my flesh were thought, Injurious distance should not stop my way; For then despite of space I would be brought, From limits far remote where thou dost stay. No matter then although my foot did stand Upon the farthest earth removed from thee; For nimble thought can jump both sea and land As soon as think the place where he would be. But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought, To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone, But that so much of earth and water wrought I must attend time's leisure with my moan, Receiving nought by elements so slow But heavy tears, badges of either's woe.
