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 an idiot, full of sound and fury,
The Tragedy of Macbeth (Act 5, Scene 5)
So thought Macbeth, who sold his soul for power and money. Today, it seems we still live in a world of people obsessed, as Macbeth was, with power and money. And to get there, many seem, like Macbeth, to be prepared to be:
“… in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o’er.” (Act 3, Scene 4)
Is this a tale told by an idiot, or a life lived as an idiot? Is there a better way? I think so.
