To die, to sleep –

This repetition is one of the reasons this speech can be tricky to memorize. My brain remembers phrases that come after “To die, to sleep – “ and I’m never quite sure I’m on the right one. I’ve never tried to memorize this speech, I’ve just heard it often enough that it’s almost in me, like a song.

I like this line in the Spanish translations I’ve heard and seen. It has its own gorgeous rhythm. Morir. Dormir. I feel like I could just hear those two verbs together again and again for a while.
