Prithee peace.I dare do all that may become a man; Who dares do more is none.
What beast was’t, then, That made you break this enterprise to me? When you durst do it then you were a man; And, to be more than what you were, you would Be so much more the man. Nor time nor placeDid then adhere, and yet you would make both:They have made themselves, and that their fitness now Does unmake you. I have given suck, and know How tender ’tis to love the babe that milks me: I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have pluck’d my nipple from his boneless gums, And dash’d the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this.
If we should fail...
Enter Lady macbeth
act 2 scene 2
Lady macbeth is talking about their child
These deeds must not be thought After these ways; so, it will make us mad.
Macbeth is worried about what would happen if he failed
Lady macbeth is telling Macbeth not to think about the deed or else it will make them mad
Methought I heard a voice cry ‘Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep,’ the innocent sleep, Sleep that knits up the ravell’d sleave of care,The death of each day’s life, sore labour’s bath,Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,Chief nourisher in life’s feast,
Lady macbeth is telling macbeth to clean the blood off of his hands and smear the blood on too the gaurds. But macbeth is too afraid to go back
I’ll go no more... I am afraid to think what I have done;Look on ’t again I dare not.
Who was it that thus cried? Why, worthy thane,You do unbend your noble strength to think So brainsickly of things. Go get some water, And wash this filthy witness from your hand. Why did you bring these daggers from the place? They must lie there: go carry them, and smear The sleepy grooms with blood.
