"Double, double toil and trouble; 
Fire burn and cauldron bubble."

“Fair is foul, and foul is fair"

what's done, is done"

"Come, you spirits. That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full. Of direst cruelty."

"Be this the whetstone of your sword: let grief
Convert to anger; blunt not the heart, enrage it."

Macduff (M. Scott McLean) and Malcolm (Ian Antal)

"Out, damned spot! Out, I say!"

Mad sleepwalking Lady Macbeth  (Jenny Strassburg)

"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 (Will Dixon)
