Echoing Macbeth's famous soliloquy in Shakespeare's tragedy after learning of the death of Lady Macbeth:


     She should have died hereafter;

     There would have been a time for such a word.

     Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,

     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

     Signifying nothing.

                                          (Act V, Scene V, 20-31)
