What are these,
  So withered and so wild in their attire
    That took not like th' inhabitants o' th' earth
      And yet are on't?
      - Macbeth (Banquo at I, iii) [Apparitions]

What, can the devil speak true?
      - Macbeth (Banquo at I, iii) [Truth]

Win us with honest trifles, to betray us
  In deepest consequence.
      - Macbeth (Banquo at I, iii) [Proverbs]

My plenteous joys,
  Wanton in fullness, seek to hide themselves
    In drops of sorrow.
      - Macbeth
         (Duncan, King of Scotland at I, iv)
        [Joy : Tears]

Nothing in his life
  Became him like the leaving it.
      - Macbeth (Malcolm at I, iv) [Death]

The earth hath bubbles as the water has,
  And these are of them.
      - Macbeth (Banquo at I, iv) [World]

There's no art
  To find the mind's construction in the face.
      - Macbeth
         (Duncan, King of Scotland at I, iv)
        [Face]

The raven himself is hoarse
  That croaks the fatal entrance of Duncan
    Under my battlements.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, v) [Ravens]

To beguile the time,
  Look like the time; bear welcome in your eye,
    Your hand, your tongue; look like th' innocent flower,
      But be the serpent under't.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, v) [Policy]

What thou wouldst highly,
  That wouldst thou holily; wouldst not play false,
    And yet wouldst wrongly win.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, v) [Character]

Yet do I fear thy nature.
  It is too full o' th' milk of human kindness
    To catch the nearest way.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, v) [Kindness]

Your face, my Thane, is as a book where men
  May read strange matters. To beguile the time,
    Look like the time; bear welcome in your eye,
      Your hand, your tongue; look like th' innocent flower,
        But be the serpent under't.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, v) [Face]

This guest of summer,
  The temple-haunting martlet, does approve
    By his loved mansionry that the heaven's breath
      Smells wooingly here. No jutty, frieze,
        Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird
          Hath made his pendent bed and procreant cradle.
            Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed
              The air is delicate.
      - Macbeth (Banquo at I, vi) [Martlets]

Away, and mock the time with fairest show;
  False face must hide what the false heart doth khow.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Hypocrisy]

Besides, this Duncan
  Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been
    So clear in his great office, that his virtues
      Will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued against
        The deep damnation of his taking off;
          And pity, like a naked new-born babe
            Striding the blast, or heaven's cherubin horsed
              Upon the sightless couriers of the air,
                Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye
                  That tears shall drown the wind.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Virtue]

False face must hide what the false heart doth know.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Deceit]

I dare do all that may become a man;
  Who dares do more is none.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii)
        [Daring : Proverbs]

I have no spur
  To prick the sides on my intent, but only
    Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself
      And falls on th' other,--
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Ambition]

If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well
  It were done quickly.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Action]

If th' assassination
  Could trammel up the consequence, and catch
    With his surcease success, that but this blow
      Might be the be-all and the end-all--; here,
        But here upon this bank and shoal of time,
          We'ld jump the life to come.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Life]

This even-handed justice
  Commends th' ingredience of our poisoned chalice
    To our own lips.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii)
        [Justice : Proverbs]

We but teach
  Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return
    To plague the inventor.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Proverbs]

We fail?
  But screw your courage to the sticking place
    And we'll not fail.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, vii) [Courage]

We will proceed no further in this business.
  He hath honored me of late, and I have brought
    Golden opinions from all sorts of people,
      Which would be worn now in their newest gloss,
        Not cast aside so soon.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at I, vii) [Opinion]

When Duncan is asleep
  (Whereto the rather shall his day's hard journey
    Soundly invite him), his two chamberlains
      Will I with wine and wassail so convince
        That memory, the warder of the brain,
          Shall be a fume, and the receipt of reason
            A limbeck only.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, vii) [Memory]
