Macbeth Quotes

Avaunt, and quit my sight! Let the earth hide thee.Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold“ Act 3 scene 4 when Macbeth is hosting the banquet and he sees Banquo’s ghost and freaks out i  front of his guests. Lady Macbeth tries to tame him but it doesn’t work and Macbeth begins to reveal hints on the things hes done.

Hail to thee, thane of Glamis! -All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane Cawdor!-All hail, Macbeth! that shalt be king hereafter“.  Act 1 Scene 3 Witches say that Macbeth is Thane of Glamis and now Cawdor (He doesn’t know at the time) And that he will be king. Macbeth responds “The Thane of Cawdor lives:why do you dress me in borrowed robes?

Soon after he is named Thane of Cawdor and at first he surrenders himself to fate and let it decide whether he will become king or not”If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me Without my stir.” This is Macbeth surrendering himself to fate similar to when Romeo says ”…He that hath steerage of my course,direct my sail”. In the play Romeo and Juliet Romeo is letting a higher power take to control over his life and Macbeth will the decision up to the higher power.

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time” Macbeth says this after he hears about the death of his wife Lady macbeth and his speech pattern even from him is starting to fail.

“security Is mortals’ chiefest enemy.” When the witches bring the apparitions to tell Macbeth’s warnings about what could bring a end to his life. Macbeth however ignores this and it comes back to stab him in the end of the play.

Stars,hide your fires! let not light see my black deep desires” This shows that Macbeth does indeed have a dark ambitions an he doesn’t what anyone else to see them. This completely contradicts what he said a scene back”If chance will have me king,why,chance may crown me without my stir” Macbeth continues to contradict him self through out the play until his death. He also seems to think he has total control but as we see in the play Macbeth is a sheep being lead but what he thinks is what he wants.

“Untimely Ripped” Macduff says this in act 5 scene 8 right at the end of play when he confronts Macbeth who claims he can killed by anyone of woman born as he has faith in the witches prophecies (more than he does in god). Although Macduff reveals that he is not woman born and instead he was untimely ripped from his mother’s womb. Macbeth now knows hes dead but fights anyway.
