To morrow

To morrow

40" x 24"

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
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 and idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

This sounds like the sort of thing a Scottish king from long ago would say who’s just been told his wife is dead and is having issues with a forest moving towards his castle while some guy who was untimely ripped from his mother’s womb wants to kill him. In fact, pretty much everyone in Scotland wants to kill him. No wonder he’s talkin’ crazy. But, crazy or not, those Scottish king guys sure are eloquent.
