Hamlet's "O what a rogue and peasant slave am I" is the first of his soliloquies. What is he saying, and how does this set of words help to move him to action?

I believe this is Hamlet's second soliloquy. Hamlet has just witnessed a player shed tears over a story he is telling. Hamlet admonishes himself for his own lack of passion and inaction. While the player cries over a story, Hamlet feels he concerns himself with ideas rather than real revenge. At the end of the soliloquy, Hamlet vows to be a man of action.
