Act 1, Scene 7 - If we should fail?

  1. Macbeth:

      If we should fail?

  2. Lady Macbeth:

     We fail?
    But screw your courage to the sticking-place, 
    And we'll not fail. When Duncan is asleep, 
    (Whereto the rather shall his day's hard journey 
    Soundly invite him) his two chamberlains 
    Will I with wine and wassail so convince, 
    That memory, the warder of the brain, 
    Shall be a fume, and the receipt of reason 
    A limbeck only. When in swinish sleep 
    Their drenchéd natures lie as in a death, 
    What cannot you and I perform upon 
    Th’ unguarded Duncan? What not put upon 
    His spongy officers, who shall bear the guilt 
    Of our great quell?
