Basics: The Relevance of Macbeth to Life in Today

“Fair is foul, and foul is fair.”

“What bloody man is that?”

“So foul and fair a day I have not seen.”

“Or have we eaten of the insane root/That takes the reason prisoner?”

“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.”

“Present fears/Are less than horrible imaginings.”

“There’s no art/To find the mind’s construction in the face:/He was a gentleman on whom I built/An absolute trust.”

“Unsex me here,/And fill me from the crown to the toe top full/Of direst cruelty!”

“Look like the innocent flower,/But be the serpent under ‘t.”

“I have no spur/To prick the sides of my intent, but only/Vaulting ambition which o’er-leaps itself”

“I have bought/Golden opinions of all sorts of people.”

“Bring forth men-children only.”

“There’s husbandry in heaven;/Their candles are all out.”

“Methought I heard a voice cry, ‘Sleep no more!'”

“The primrose way to the everlasting bonfire.”

“Confusion now hath made his masterpiece.”

“There’s nothing serious in mortality,/All is but toys; renown and grace is dead.”

“A deed of dreadful note.”

“Come, seeling night,/Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day.”

“But now I am cabined, cribbed, confined, bound in/To saucy doubts and fears.”

“I am in blood/Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more,/Returning were as tedious as go o’er.”

“Be bloody, bold, and resolute.”

“I have lived long enough: my way of life/Is fall’n into the sear”

“I have supped full with horrors.’

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,/Creeps in this petty pace from day to day”

“They have tied me to a stake; I cannot fly,/But bear-like I must fight the course.”
