That, trusted home, Might yet enkindle you unto the crown, Besides the thane of Cawdor. But ‘tis strange. And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, Win us with honest trifles, to betray’s In deepest consequence.
Thou has it no king, Cawdor, Glamis, all. As the weird women promised, and I fear

And oftentimes, to win us to our harm the instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles, to betray’s in deepest consequence.

What, sir, not yet at rest? The king’s a-bed: He hath been in unusual pleasure, and…
