Macbeth

"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"

With these words, Shakespeare's bloodthirsty hero Macbeth reaches his end, looking back on a life driven by an unfulfillable longing for happiness and immortality, stumbling over the sense of the senseless... signifying nothing.
