How is’t with me, when every
noise appals me
?
What hands are here? Ha, they pluck out mine
eyes!
Will all great Neptune’s
ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No; this my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine
,
Making the green one red.
[Re-enter Lady Macbeth.]

ACT II, Scene II
MACBETH.

I’ll go no more:
I am afraid to think what I have done;
Look on’t again I dare
not
.

LADY MACBETH.

Infirm of purpose!
Give me the daggers: the sleeping and the dead
Are but as pictures: ’tis the eye of childhood
That fears a painted devil. If he do bleed,
I’ll gild the faces of the grooms withal,
For it must seem their
guilt
.
[Exit. Knocking within.]
