It is not for mortals to know the future One may never know what lies before them or how far in the future it lies Even when one knows that an event is inevitable fate keeps its time unknown It is for that in which one must be prepared Since one cannot control what fate has in store for them they must be prepared to endure whatever may come whether for good or for bad Hamlet Prince of Denmark realizes that his fate is sealed The murder of his father wishes the same fate of young Hamlet Hamlet knows his would be murderer yet he knows not the means of death planned for him nor when it will occur All Hamlet knows is what he tells Horatio that if it be not now yet it will come the readiness is all Hamlet realizes that he cannot run from fate he can only be prepared for its doings Hamlets indecision is not an indication of weakness but the result of his complex understanding of the moral dilemma with which he is faced In this critics state that Hamlet did not always have the readiness required of him to fulfill his role Rather Hamlet acquired this in the duration of the play particularly after he learns of his impending death in England The knowledge that he has little or no time in which to accomplish what he feels is his destiny Hamlet takes action Hamlet will deliver himself over to his fate because he finally realizes that it is out of his control Now he is of the opinion that theres special providence in the fall of a sparrow and therefore a guiding hand behind his own fall whenever it coms now or in the future The decisiveness in which he tells Horatio that he will go face Laertes is evident
