Original quote from by Hamlet in Act III, scene i:

“To be, or not to be: that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by opposing end them. To die: to sleep;”

Rewrite:

What is the point, when tied by fate?

To suffer for what one wants when nothing is guaranteed.

The one thing that we are promised in this life is death,

If all we deserve and are owed is death that what purpose is there in life, and

why should I continue to resist the only thing fated to be?

I like this idea. It is important to think about where you are heading in the future and where you see yourself. I think it would be cool if it was a story about you, who lives the life of his future self and current self at the same time. You could give yourself a goal and you use your present self to change the life of the future self.
