From the early days o this blog, originally published March 26, 2009. Still a great quote from Macbeth.

I came across this quote from Macbeth as I was going through some old school notes. It’s dark but full of symbolism.

Macb.  She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Macbeth, Act V. Scene V.
