Sure, but what makes a quotation good or useful is what purpose you put it towards. By that I mean, once you start looking for a quotation that shows X, you can review the play looking for it. For example, if you wanted to prove that Hamlet contained good advice, you might use quotations from Polonius…but you'd have to take into account how things turned out for him.
That said, you'll find a link to the enotes version of Hamlet below; it comes with some modern English translations.
You'll also find links to important quotations from Hamlet.

Here are a few more:

 

Hamlet, Act V, Sc. II
Absent thee from felicity awhile.

Hamlet, Act II, Sc. II
They have a plentiful lack of wit.

Hamlet, Act III, Sc. II
Pluck out the heart of my mystery.

Hamlet, Act III, Sc. II
They fool me to the top of my bent.

Hamlet, Act V, Sc. I
Cudgel thy brains no more about it.

Hamlet, Act II, Sc. II
Come, give us a taste of your quality.

Hamlet, Act III, Sc. II
It will discourse most eloquent music.

Hamlet, Act V, Sc. I
A ministering angel shall my sister be.

Hamlet, Act V, Sc. II
I am more an antique Roman than a Dane.
