    Macbeth? Act 5, Scene 5.

    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,

    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.
