Thanks for your pains.

Do you not hope

your children shall be kings?

Those that gave Cawdor to me,

promised no less to them.

That, trusted home, might yet

enkindle you unto the crown...

...besides the Thane of Cawdor.

Often, to win us to our harm,

instruments of darkness tell truths.

Win us with honest trifles,

to betray us in deepest consequence.

This supernatural soliciting

cannot be ill...

... cannot be good.

If ill, why hath it given me earnest

of success, commencing in a truth?

I am Thane of Cawdor.

If good, why do I yield

to that suggestion...

... whose horrid image doth unfix

my hair and make my seated heart...

... knock at my ribs

against the use of nature?

Present fears are less

than horrible imaginings.

My thought, whose murder yet

is but fantastical...

... shakes so my single state of man...

... that function is smothered

in surmise...

... and nothing is but what is not.

I thank you, gentlemen.

Look how our partner's rapt.

If chance will have me king,

chance may crown me without my stir.

Worthy Macbeth.

We stay upon your leisure.

Give me your favour, my dull brain

was wrought with things forgotten.

Let us to the king.

Long live the king.

Nothing in his life became him

like the leaving it.

He threw away the dearest thing he

owed as if it were a careless trifle.

There's no art to find

a mind's construction in the face.

On him I built an absolute trust.

"Hail, king that shalt be.

This have I thought good

to deliver thee...

...my dearest partner of greatness...

...that thou might not be ignorant

of what greatness is promised thee.

Lay it to thy heart, and farewell."

Glamis thou art, and Cawdor...

...and shalt be what thou art promised.

Yet I do fear thy nature.

It is too full of the milk of human
