To make society
  The sweeter welcome, we will keep ourself
    Till supper time alone.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, i) [Society]

Better be with the dead,
  Whom we to gain our peace, have sent to peace,
    Than on the torture of the mind to lie
      In restless ecstasy.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii) [Conscience]

But let the frame of things disjoint, both the worlds suffer,
  Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep
    In the affliction of these terrible dreams
      That shake us nightly.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii) [Fear]

Come, seeling night,
  Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day,
    And with thy bloody and invisible hand
      Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond
        Which keeps me pale. Light thickens, and the crow
          Makes wing to th' rooky wood.
            Good things of day begin to droop and drowse,
              While night's black agents to their prey do rouse.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii) [Crows : Night]

Duncan is in his grave;
  After life's fitful fever he sleeps well.
    Treason has done his worst: nor steel nor poison,
      Malice domestic, foreign levy, nothing,
        Can touch him further.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii) [Death]

Ere the bat hath flown
  His cloistered flight, ere to black Hecate's summons
    The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums
      Hath rung night's yawning peal, there shall be done
        A deed of dreadful note.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii)
        [Bats : Crime : Deeds]

Gentle my lord, sleek o'er your rugged looks;
  Be bright and jovial among your guests to-night.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at III, ii) [Guests]

Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii)
        [Beginnings : Proverbs : Results]

Thou marvell'st at my words, but hold thee still;
  Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii)
        [Beginnings : Proverbs : Results]

'Tis safer to be that which we destroy
  Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth's Lady at III, ii) [Joy]

We have scorched the snake, not killed it.
  She'll close and be herself, whilst our poor malice
    Remains in danger of her former tooth.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, ii)
        [Danger : Failure : Proverbs]

The west yet glimmers with some streaks of day.
  Now spurs the lated traveller apace
    To gain the timely inn, and near approaches
      The subject of our watch.
      - Macbeth (First Murderer at III, iii)
        [Inns]

Be large in mirth; anon we'll drink a measure
  The table round.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Merriment]

Blood hath been shed ere now, i' th' olden time,
  Ere humane stature purged the gentle weal;
    Ay, and since too, murders have been performed
      Too terrible for the ear. The time has been
        That, when the brains were out, the man would die,
          And there an end. But now they rise again,
            With twenty mortal murders on their crowns,
              And push us from our stools. This is more strange
                Than such a murder is.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Murder]

But now I am cabined, cribbed, confined, bound in
  To saucy doubts and fears.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Doubt]

Can such things be,
  And overcome us like a summer's cloud
    Without our special wonder?
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Wonder]

It will have blood, they say: blood will have blood.
  Stones have been known to move and trees to speak;
    Augures and understood relations have
      By maggot-pies and choughs and rooks brought forth
        The secret'st man of blood. What is the night?
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Wonder]

Now good digestion wait on appetite,
  And health on both!
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Appetite]

Safe in a ditch he bides,
  With twenty trenched gashes on his head,
    The least a death to nature.
      - Macbeth (First Murderer at III, iv)
        [Wounds]

Stand not upon the order of your going,
  But go at once.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at III, iv) [Haste]

Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake
  Thy gory locks at me.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Fear]

To feed were best at home;
  From thence, the sauce is meat to ceremony:
    Meeting were bare without it.
      - Macbeth (Lady Macbeth at III, iv)
        [Ceremony]

What man dare, I dare.
  Approach thou like the rugged Russian bear,
    The armed rhinoceros, or th' Hyrcan tiger;
      Take any shape but that, and my firm nerves
        Shall never tremble.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Daring]

You make me strange
  Even to the disposition that I owe,
    When now I think you can behold such sights
      And keep the natural ruby of your cheeks
        When mine is blanched with fear.
      - Macbeth (Macbeth at III, iv) [Fear]

A deed without a name.
      - Macbeth (Witches at IV, i) [Deeds]
