What Is He That Builds Stronger Than Either The Mason, The Shipwright, Or The Carpenter?

Hamlet Shakespeare Literature
Gravedigger 2: The gallows-maker, for that frame outlives a thousand tenants.
Gravedigger 1: I like thy wit well in good faith. The gallows does well, but how does it well? It does well to those that do ill. [...] To't again, come.
Gravedigger 2: Who builds stronger than a mason, a shipwright, or a carpenter?
Gravedigger 1: Ay, tell me that, and unyoke.
Gravedigger 2: Mass, I cannot tell.
Gravedigger 1: Cudgel thy brains no more about it [...] and when you are asked this question next, say a grave-maker. The houses he makes lasts till doomsday.

Gravedigger 1 would have to be my favourite Hamlet character. Witty fellow.
And yes, studying Hamlet too much will result in randomly quoting it.

Just as I predicted in the Corrupt-A-Wish topic. xP

But seriously, I know that. I've still got half of the famous monologue memorized. >< And will start reciting it at the most strange times. Same goes for many other poems and works of literature....

I took it upon myself to memorize the graveyard monologue, just because. :P And, during the course of studying Hamlet, I also somehow absorbed the first portion of the "to be or not to be" soliloquy too.
