Description: Lady MacBeth takes the dagger after the murder of King Duncan.
William Shakespeare's "MacBeth"
Act 2, Scene 2
Lady Macbeth: Infirm of purpose!
Give me the daggers: the sleeping and the dead 715
Are but as pictures: 'tis the eye of childhood
That fears a painted devil. If he do bleed,
I'll gild the faces of the grooms withal;
For it must seem their guilt.
