Wouldst thou have that
  Which thou esteem'st the ornament of life,
    And live a coward in thine own esteem,
      Letting 'I dare not' wait upon 'I would,'
        Like the poor cat i' th' adage?
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at I, vii) [Cowards]

I go, and it is done. The bell invites me.
  Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell
    That summons thee to heaven, or to hell.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, i) [Destiny]

Is this a dagger which I see before me,
  The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee!
    I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.
      Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible
        To feeling as to sight? or art thou but
          A dagger of the mind, a false creation
            Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?
              I see thee yet, in form as palpable
                As this which now I draw.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, i) [Apparitions]

There's husbandry in heaven;
  Their candles are all out.
      - Macbeth (Banquo at II, i) [Heaven]

This diamond he greets your wife withal
  By the name of most kind hostess, and shut up
    In measureless content.
      - Macbeth (Banquo at II, i) [Contentment]

But wherefore could not I pronounce 'Amen'?
  I had most need of blessing, and 'Amen'
    Stuck in my throat.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, ii) [Prayer]

It is the owl that shrieked, the fatal bellman
  Which gives the stern'st good-night.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at II, ii) [Owls]

Methought I heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more!
  Macbeth does murder sleep'--the innocent sleep,
    Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleave of care,
      The death of each day's life, sore labor's bath,
        Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
          Chief nourisher in life's feast.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, ii) [Sleep]

Whence is that knocking?
  How is't with me, when every noise appals me?
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, ii) [Proverbs]

Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
  Clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather
    The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
      Making the green one red.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, ii) [Murder]

Had I but died an hour before this chance,
  I had lived a blessed time; for from this instant
    There's nothing serious in mortality:
      All is but toys. Renown and grace is dead,
        The wine of life is drawn, and the mere lees
          Is left this vault to brag of.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, iii)
        [Disappointment : Life]

Shake off this downy sleep, death's counterfeit,
  And look on death itself.
      - Macbeth (Macduff at II, iii) [Sleep]

The labor we delight in physics pain.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II, iii) [Labor]

What should be spoken here,
  Where our fate, hid in an auger hole,
    May rush and seize us?
      - Macbeth (Donalbain at II, iii) [Fate]

What's the business,
  That such a hideous trumpet calls to parley
    The sleepers of the house? Speak, speak!
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at II, iii) [Sound]

On Tuesday last
  A falcon, now tow'ring in her pride of place,
    Was by a mousing owl hawked at and killed.
      - Macbeth (Ross at II, iv) [Falcons]

Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible
  To feeling as to sight? or art thou but
    A dagger of the mind, a false creation
      Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at II,i) [Apparitions]

And I another,
  So weary with disasters, tugged with fortune,
    That I would set my life on any chance
      To mend it or be rid on't.
      - Macbeth (First Murderer at III, i) [Life]

Banquo, thy soul's flight,
  If it find heaven, must find it out to-night.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, i) [Soul]

Go not my horse the better,
  I must become a borrower of the night
    For a dark hour or twain.
      - Macbeth (Banquo at III, i) [Night]

I am one, my liege,
  Whom the vile blows and buffets of the world
    Have so incensed that I am reckless what
      I do to spite the world.
      - Macbeth (Second Murderer at III, i)
        [Recklessness]

Leave no rubs nor botches in the work.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, i) [Perfection]

(Macbeth:) Here's our chief guest.
  (Lady Macbeth:) If he had been forgotten,
    It had been as a gap in our great feast,
      And all-thing unbecoming.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth & Lady Macbeth at III, i)
        [Guests]

There is none but he
  Whose being I do fear; and under him
    My genius is rebuked, as it is said
      Mark Antony's was by Caesar.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, i) [Genius]

'Tis much he dares;
  And to that dauntless temper of his mind
    He hath a wisdom that doth guide his valor
      To act in safety.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, i) [Valor : Wisdom]
