Doctor A great perturbation in nature, to receive at oncethe benefit of sleep, and do the effects ofwatching! In this slumbery agitation, besides herwalking and other actual performances, what, at anytime, have you heard her say?
Doctor Foul whisperings are abroad: unnatural deedsDo breed unnatural troubles: infected mindsTo their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets:More needs she the divine than the physician.God, God forgive us all! Look after her;Remove from her the means of all annoyance,And still keep eyes upon her. So, good night:My mind she has mated, and amazed my sight.I think, but dare not speak.
Lady Macduff He had none:His flight was madness: when our actions do not,Our fears do make us traitors.

Macduff Let us ratherHold fast the mortal sword, and like good menBestride our down-fall’n birthdom: each new mornNew widows howl, new orphans cry, new sorrowsStrike heaven on the face, that it resoundsAs if it felt with Scotland and yell’d outLike syllable of dolour.
Macduff Bleed, bleed, poor country!
Macduff In nature is a tyranny; it hath beenThe untimely emptying of the happy throneAnd fall of many kings.
Macduff, Macbeth Fit to govern!No, not to live. Who is speaking and who is being referred to?
Macduff Make all our trumpets speak; give them all breath,Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death.
Banquo To know it further. Fears and scruples shake us:In the great hand of God I stand; and thenceAgainst the undivulged pretence I fightOf treasonous malice.
Lennox What a haste looks through his eyes! So should he lookThat seems to speak things strange.
Lennox The night has been unruly: where we lay,Our chimneys were blown down; and, as they say,Lamentings heard i’ the air; strange screams of death,And prophesying with accents terribleOf dire combustion and confused eventsNew hatch’d to the woeful time: the obscure birdClamour’d the livelong night: some say, the earthWas feverous and did shake.
Lennox Was not that nobly done? Ay, and wisely too;
Lennox Or so much as it needs,To dew the sovereign flower and drown the weeds.Make we our march towards Birnam
Ross He bade me, from him, call thee thane of Cawdor:In which addition, hail, most worthy thane!For it is thine.
Ross Ah, good father,Thou seest, the heavens, as troubled with man’s act,Threaten his bloody stage: by the clock, ’tis day,And yet dark night strangles the travelling lamp:Is’t night’s predominance, or the day’s shame,That darkness does the face of earth entomb,When living light should kiss it?
Ross Now is the time of help; your eye in ScotlandWould create soldiers, make our women fight,To doff their dire distresses.
