A quote that indicates Hamlet’s tragic flaw that appears later in Shakespeare’s Hamlet is spoken in Act 4.4.31-32.  Hamlet has just witnessed Fortinbras’s army on its way to Poland to capture a piece of worthless land.  Two thousand men and 20,000 ducats will be the cost of just beginning the attack, all for something so worthless.  Hamlet sees this as a rebuke of his failure to kill Claudius, and says:How all occasions do inform against me,And spur my dull revenge! …… I do not knowWhy yet I live to say ‘This thing’s to do;’Sith I have cause and will and strength and meansTo do’t. …Hamlet says “all occasions,” not just the occasion of seeing the Norwegian army.  He sums up other events in the play that he has also interpreted as rebukes:  the player’s speech concerning Hecuba, his refusal to kill Claudius while Claudius was praying, the fact that the ghost had to appear to him a second time because Hamlet had not yet done his job though he has “will and strength and means.”All occasions do, indeed, inform against Hamlet’s delay.  At least that’s how he sees it in this scene.
