- She should have died hereafter;
- There would have been a time for such a word.
- Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
- Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
- To the last syllable of recorded time;
- And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
- The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
- Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
- That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
- And then is heard no more. It is a tale
- Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
- Signifying nothing.
- — Macbeth (Act 5, Scene 5, lines 17-28)
