Chemistry, or no Chemistry:  that is the question: 

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The tests and lectures of an outrageous teacher,

Or to take arms against a sea of experiments,

And by working end them.  To work: to pass;

No more; and by a pass to say we end

The heart-ache, and the thousand natural explosions

That chemists are heir to.  ‘Tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish’d.
