- Rosencrantz: Do you think Death could possibly be a boat?
- Guildenstern: No, no, no... death is not. Death isn't. Take my meaning? Death is the ultimate negative. Not-being. You can't not be on a boat.
- Rosencrantz: I've frequently not been on boats.
- Guildenstern: No, no... what you've been is not on boats.
