Transcript of Macbeth: Blind Ambition

Macbeth: Blind Ambition
Act 1 Scene 7 Lines
"... I have given suck, and know
How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me.
I would, white it was smiling in my face,
Have plucked my nipple from its boneless gums
And dashed the brains out, had I sworn as you
Have done to this."
Act 2 Scene 4 Lines
" 'Gainst nature still!
Thriftless ambition, that wilt ravin up
Thine own life's means! Then 'tis most like
The sovereignty will fall upon Macbeth."
"They hailed him father to a line of kings, Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown, And put a barren scepter in my gripe, Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand, No son of mine succeeding. -Act 3 Scene 1 Lines
"It is concluded. Banquo, thy soul's flight, If it find heaven, must find it out tonight." - Act 3 Scene 1 Lines
"For mine own good, All causes shall give way. I am in blood stepp'd in so far that, should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o'er." -Act 3 Scene 4 Lines
ACT 1 Scene 4 Lines 50-55
Act 5 Scene 8 Lines
"Hail, King! For so thou art. Behold where stands
the usurper's cursed head. The time is free
I see thee compassed with the kingdom's pearl,
That speak my salutation in their minds,
whose voices I desire aloud with mine.
Hail, King of Scotland!"
Act 3 Scene 1 Line
"The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step
On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap,
For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires;
Let not light see my black and deep desires.
The eye wink at the hand, yet let that be
Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see."
" Thou hast it now: King, Cawdor, Glamis, all,
as the weird women promised, and I fear
Thou play'dst most foully for't."
Act 1 Scene 7 Lines
Act 4 Scene 1 Lines
"The castle of Macduff I will surprise, seize upon Fife,
Give to the edge o' the sword his wife, his babes, and
all unfortunate souls that trace him in his line."
"He's here in trust:
First, as I am his kinsman and his subject,
Strong both against the deed, then, as his host,
Who should against his murderer shut the door,
Not bear the knife myself."
