Good Hamlet, cast thy nighted colour off,And let thine eye look like a friend on Denmark.Do not for ever with thy vailed lidsSeek for thy noble father in the dust:Thou know’st ’tis common; all that lives must die,Passing through nature to eternity.
Tis sweet and commendable in your nature, Hamlet,To give these mourning duties to your father...
O, that this too too solid flesh would meltThaw and resolve itself into a dew!Or that the Everlasting had not fix’dHis canon ‘gainst self-slaughter! O God! God!How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable,Seem to me all the uses of this world!

They went out themselves and saw the ghost .They tried to speak to it but the ghost disappeared before they got the chance to hear a reply. They were left with thoughts that it was a sense of there imagination.
