Before my body I throw my warlike shield: lay on, Macduff, And damn'd be him that first cries "Hold, enough!" Exeunt, fighting. Alarum. Retreat. Flourish. Enter, with drum and colors, Malcolm, old Siward, Ross, the other Thanes, and Soldiers. Mai. I would the friends we miss were safe arriv'd. Siw. Some must go off; and yet, by these I see So great a day as this is cheaply bought. Mai. Macduff is missing, and your noble son. Ross.

We shall not spend a large expense of time Before we reckon with your several loves, And make us even with you. My thanes and kinsmen, Henceforth be earls, the first that ever Scotland In such an honour nam'd.33 What's more to...show more
