Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow … a tale told … signifying nothing

Critics angry at Bush climate plan
By Roger Harrabin
Environment analyst, BBC News

If Bush had studied Macbeth at school, he might have learnt a thing or two … which perhaps would mean we would not have to put up with his kind of utter nonsense on the world stage.

SEYTON

The queen, my lord, is dead.

MACBETH

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
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,
Signifying nothing.
Enter a Messenger

Thou comest to use thy tongue; thy story quickly.

MESSENGER

Gracious my lord,
I should report that which I say I saw,
But know not how to do it.

MACBETH

Well, say, sir.

William Shakespeare: Macbeth, 5.5
