Macbeth Act 5 Scene 8 Lines

First line Why should I play the Roman fool and die on mine own sword? Whiles I see lives, the gashes do better upon them.
Turn, hellhound, turn! Of all men else I have avoided thee. But get the back. My soul is too much charged with blood of thine already.
Thou bloodier villian than terms can give thee out. Thou loosest labor. As easy mayst thou the intrenchant air with thy keen sword impress as make me bleed. Let fall thy blade on vulnerable crest; I bear a charmèd life, which must not yield to one of woman born.
Tell thee Macduff was from his mother’s womb untimely ripped Accursèd be that tongue that tells me so, for it hath cowed my better part of man! And be these juggling fiends no more believed that palter with us in double sense, that keep the word of promise to our ear and break it to our hope. I’ll not fight with thee.
“here may you see the tyrant.” I will not yield to kiss the ground before young Malcolm’s feet and to be baited with the rabble’s curse. Though Birnam Wood be come to Dunsinane and thou opposed, being of no woman born, yet I will try the last. Before my body I throw my warlike shield. Before my body I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff, and damned be him that first cries “hold enough!”
