Razz "Is the man of the house home?", they asked. "No", she replied, "he is out". "Then we
cannot come in", they replied.
Neutral

told him what happened

"We don't do into a house together", they replied Crying or Very sad . She asked "why is that?". Shocked One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth Cool " he said that as pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to the other one, " He is Success study , and I am Love I love you ".

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
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

You have erred in the address, Mr Heron.

Who's told you that I understand poetry??

I usually run away from poetry lectures at the university. My doctors of poetry, there, do not know my face but in hall tests because I ask much... tongue

poetry was my favourite subject in the university, especially the romantic poetry. however, the extract above is taken from Shakespeare's Macbeth.

I am late in the reply ....Sorry!! I went on a short visit to my grandmother's house.
Right!! It's an extract taken from a play of Macbeth by Shakespeare. I've just remembered... tongue But what is appropriate to mention such a thing? it's a very tragedy drama of Macbeth and his wife..Lady Macbeth..!! from my viewpoint, he's a devil and deserves such end... tongue

I don't know why you, in every time, make a fool of me!!! Mad

yeah, that is right Maisoon. But, forget about Macbeth, forget about shakespeare and concentrate in the passage itself.
it is lines of poetry talking about the meaning of life and so far. Did you get the point. Actually, I didn't read Macbeth before, but what i read is just these lines because they are very significant regardless of the story of the tragedy.


Thank you so much

Look! I've read this play and watched the movie of Macbeth as well. But these lines, I think, said by him after he killed the king to become a king after; he says them to his wife....
Actually, I don't remember where I throw the book, otherwise I'm gonna get sure...I don't know sorry.. the book is not in the treasury ... Where did it go??

Uh! Finally I found the book of Macbeth's play. It was hiding in an old bag under my bed.
Wherever, this passage is in the last act of the play; the act V (5): scene V. They are saying by the character Macbeth but not saying to his wife, as I thought. He says that when the news of the death of his wife was informed him by a servant in the castle. Macbeth despite the hardness of his heart , becomes sad and says "She should have died hereafter;...(then the passage above)" which talks about the helplessness of human beings.

But, Mr Heron, I never agree with this desperate man of life especially when he says: "..It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
signifying nothing."
which he means.. life is like a foolish story told by an idiot, full of noise and violence, without any real meaning.

Mr Heron, get some feelings about how much this life is being nice.

OK Maisoon but I agree with him in this point. life is depicted as a candle melting as time passes. and what i liked more in these lines is the similes.
for example ; life is candle.
life is a walking a shadow.
and life after all is nothing
because we all are going to leave this mortal world and leave nothing behind.

Actually, I'm trying to get that feeling of being happy with life, but the flower that smiles today, tomorrow dies,
and all we wish to stay,tempts and then flies.
what is this world's delight?
Lightning, that mocks the night,
Brief even as bright.--


Virtue, how frail it is!--
Friendship, how rare!--
Love, how it sells poor bliss
For proud despair!
But these though they soon fall,
Survive their joy, and all
Which ours we call.--
Whilst skies are blue and bright,
Whilst flowers are gay,
Whilst eyes that change ere night
Make glad the day;
Whilst yet the calm hours creep,
Dream thou - and from thy sleep
Then wake to weep.

Thanks
