"She should have died hereafter.
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
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,
(These words are uttered by Macbeth after
he hears of Lady Macbeth’s death, in Act 5, scene 5, lines 16–27.
Given the great love between them, his response is oddly muted,
but it segues quickly into a speech of such pessimism and despair—one
of the most famous speeches in all of Shakespeare—that the audience
realizes how completely his wife’s passing and the ruin of his power
have undone Macbeth.)
