"Come you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here; and fill me, from the crown to the toe, top-full of direst cruelty!
And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,
The instruments of darkness tell us truths,
Win us with honest trifles, to betray 's
In deepest consequence.
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell
That summons thee to heaven or to hell
When shall we three meet again?
In thunder, lightning, or in rain
Let every soldier hew him down a bough
And bear 't before him. Thereby shall we shadow
The numbers of our host and make discovery
Err in report of us.
O treachery! Fly, good Fleance, fly, fly, fly!
Thou may 'st revenge —O slave!
Had I as many sons as I have hairs,
I would not wish them to a fairer death.
Fit to govern?
No, not to live! O, nation miserable
If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me
Without my stir.
All is the fear and nothing is the love,
As little is the wisdom, where the flight
So runs against all reason.
Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all,
As the weird women promised, and I fear
Thou played'st most foully for 't
So, thanks to all at once and to each one,
Whom we invite to see us crowned at Scone.
