Be lion-mettled, proud, and take no care
Who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are!
- Macbeth (Apparition at IV, i) [Conspiracy]
Come like shadows, so depart!
- Macbeth (Witches at IV, i) [Shadows]
Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble.
- Macbeth (First Witch at IV, i) [Witches]
From this moment
The very firstlings of my heart shall be
The firstlings of my hand. And even now,
To crown my thoughts with acts, be it thought and done:
The castle of MacDuff I will surprise,
Seize upon Fife, give to th' edge th' sword
His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls
That trace him in his line.
- Macbeth (Macbeth at IV, i) [Action : Heart]
Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witch's mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravined salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digged i' th' dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Slivered in the moon's eclipse,
Nose of Turk, and Tartar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-delivered by a drab
Make the gruel thick and slab.
Add there to a tiger's chaudron
For th' ingredience of our cauldron.
- Macbeth (Third Witch at IV, i) [Yew]
The flighty purpose never is o'ertook
Unless the deed go with it.
- Macbeth (Macbeth at IV, i) [Deeds]
Then live, Macduff,--what need I fear of thee?
But yet I'll make assurance double sure
And take a bond of fate.
- Macbeth (Macbeth at IV, i) [Fate]
What, will the line stretch out to th' crack of doom?
- Macbeth (Macbeth at IV, i) [Destiny]
But I remember now
I am in this earthly world, where to do harm
Is often laudable, to do good sometime
Accounted dangerous folly.
- Macbeth (Wife at IV, ii) [Action : Goodness]
For the poor wren
(The most diminutive of birds) will fight,
Her young ones in her nest, against the owl.
- Macbeth (Lady Macduff at IV, ii) [Wrens]
His flight was madness. When our actions do not,
Our fears do make us traitors.
- Macbeth (Lady Macduff at IV, ii) [Fear]
Thing at the worst will cease, or else climb upward
To what they were before.
- Macbeth (Ross at IV, ii) [Destiny]
Things at the worst will cease, or e'en climb upward
To what they were before.
- Macbeth (Ross at IV, ii) [Proverbs]
Bleed, bleed, poor Country!
Great tyranny, lay thou thy basis sure,
For goodness dare not check thee; wear thou thy wrongs,
The title is affeered!
- Macbeth (Macduff at IV, iii) [Tyranny]
In nature is a tyranny. It hath been
Th' untimely emptying of the happy throne
And fall of many kings.
- Macbeth (Macduff at IV, iii)
Each new morn
New widows howl, new orphans cry, new sorrows
Strike heaven on the face, that it resounds
As if felt with Scotland and yelled out
Like syllable of dolor.
- Macbeth (Macduff at IV, iii) [Sorrow]
Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'erfraught heart and bids it break.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Sorrow]
Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'erfraught heart, and bids it break.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Proverbs]
I cannot but remember such things were
That were most precious to me.
- Macbeth (Macduff at IV, iii) [Memory]
I grant him bloody,
Luxurious, avaricious, false, deceitful,
Sudden, malicious, smacking of every sin
That has a name.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Character]
Nay, had I pow'r, I should
Pour the sweet milk of concord into hell,
Uproar the universal peace, confound
All unity on earth.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Chaos]
O nation miserable,
With an untitled tyrant bloody-sceptred,
When shalt thou see thy wholesome days again,
Since that the truest issue of thy throne
By his own interdiction stands accursed
And does blaspheme his breed?
- Macbeth (Macduff at IV, iii) [Tyrants]
That which you are, my thoughts cannot transpose:
Angels are bright still though the brightest fell;
Though all things foul would wear the brows of grace,
Yet grace must still look so.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Angels]
The king-becoming graces,
As justice, verity, temp'rance, stableness,
Bounty, perseverance, mercy, lowliness,
Devotion, patience, courage, fortitude,
I have no relish of them, but abound
In the division of each several crime,
Acting in many ways.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Royalty]
The night is long that never finds the day.
- Macbeth (Malcolm at IV, iii) [Night]
