Macbeth - Shakespeare

This quote was added by bleh
Pity, like an innocent newborn baby, will ride the wind with winged angels on invisible horses through the air to spread news of the horrible deed to everyone everywhere. People will shed a flood of tears that will drown the wind like a horrible downpour of rain. I can't spur myself to action. The only thing motivating me is ambition, which makes people rush ahead of themselves toward disaster.

... Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye,
That tears shall drown the wind.

I have no spur To prick the sides of my intent,
but only Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself
And falls on the other.

"Pity, like a naked new-born babe, / Striding the blast, or heaven's cherubins, horsed / Upon the sightless couriers of the air, / Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye, / That tears shall drown the wind"
