HIGH SPOTS 117 A Maiden ' s Soliloquy (A Parody on Hamlet ' s Soliloquy) To eat, or not to eat ; that is the question : Whether ' tis nobler in the mind to suffer The stares and glances for an enormous figure, Or to forego all pleasing victuals, And by not eating, be thin, to starve; to eat — No more; and by a fast to say we end The wrinkles, and the thousand double chins That flesh is heir to, ' tis a perfection Devoutly to be wished. To change one ' s shape; To fast; perchance to starve; aye there ' s the rub; For to that starving soul temptations come, When we have shuffled off desire for sweet, To give us pause : there ' s the respect That makes calamity of such a diet; For who would bear against the smell of apple dumplings, The teacher ' s threat, the senior ' s contumely, The pangs of empty stomach, ham and eggs, The insolence of rules, and the spurns The patient fat one of the skinny takes, When she herself might eat a house down In one great mouthful? Who exerts herself, To grunt and sweat under weary exercise, But that the dread of giving up some food, An undiscovered pleasure, which temptation No one refuses, puzzles the will, And makes us rather bear the pound we have Than be uncomfortable for a single moment? Thus hunger does make cowards of us all And thus the noble point of resolution Is sicklied o ' er with the pale cast of thought, And calories of great power and value With this regard are tempted to our stomachs, And use the name of action.
