Provided you stick to things that are very likely to reach consensus
that what you wrote is 100% backed up by the text, it's certainly
verifiable and probably notable (since Hamlet is notable). But if you
try to draw any kind of conclusion, that isn't completely implied by
the text, then it's OR.

We live in an imperfectly imperfect world. If we lived in a perfectly
imperfect world things would be a lot better.
