Art thou afeard
To be the same in thine own act and valour
As thou art in desire? Wouldst thou have that
Which thou esteem'st the ornament of life,
And live a coward in thine own esteem,
Letting 'I dare not' wait upon 'I would,'
Like the poor cat i' the adage?
-Lady Macbeth, Shakespeare's Macbeth, Act I Scene VII
My Lady Macbeth can be seen in the Bernstein Theatre at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Massachusetts
