The quote is:   "There are more things in heaven and earth, than are
dreamt of in your philosophy Horatio."

I believe Willie Shakespeare stole this line from a Greek Tragedian.

All iterations of this line basically have the same meaning:  any
attempt to rationally grasp the larger realities of life fail due to
the latter's inherent ineffability.
