1403
    Let every man be master of his time
Till seven at night.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 1.
1404
    Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown,
And put a barren sceptre in my gripe,
Thence to be wrench’d with an unlineal hand,
No son of mine succeeding.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 1.
1405
    Mur. We are men, my liege.
Mac. Ay, in the catalogue ye go for men.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 1.
1406
    I am one, my liege,
Whom the vile blows and buffets of the world
Have so incensed that I am reckless what
I do to spite the world.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 1.
1407
    So weary with disasters, tugg’d with fortune,
That I would set my life on any chance,
To mend it, or be rid on ’t.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 1.
1408
    Things without all remedy
Should be without regard; what ’s done is done.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1409
    We have scotch’d the snake, not kill’d it.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1410
    Better be with the dead,
Whom we, to gain our peace, have sent to peace,
Than on the torture of the mind to lie
In restless ecstasy. Duncan is in his grave;
After life’s fitful fever he sleeps well:
Treason has done his worst; nor steel, nor poison,
Malice domestic, foreign levy, nothing,
Can touch him further.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1411
    In them Nature’s copy ’s not eterne.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1412
    A deed of dreadful note.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1413
    Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck,
Till thou applaud the deed.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1414
    Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 2.
1415
    Now spurs the lated traveller apace
To gain the timely inn.
          Macbeth. Act iii. Sc. 3.
