POLONIUS: Buy the best clothes you can afford, but take care that they’re rich-looking, not flashy. For clothes make the man—which is doubly true in France.
Neither a borrower nor a lender be, for when you lend to a friend, you often lose both the money and the friend, and borrowing will make you a spendthrift.
This above all: To thine own self be true.
Then you cannot be false to anyone.
Farewell, and let my blessing seal this advice.
LAERTES: Most humbly do I take my leave, my father.
POLONIUS: Go now, your servants await.
LAERTES: Farewell, Ophelia, and remember well what I’ve said to you.
