DUNCAN What bloody man is that? He can report, As seemeth by his plight, of the revolt The newest state. (1.2.1)
Say to the King the knowledge of the broil
As thou didst leave it.
Doubtful it stood,
As two spent swimmers that do cling together
And choke their art. (1.2.1)
CAPTAIN For brave Macbeth —well he deserves that name — Disdaining fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valour's minion carved out his passage Till he faced the slave; Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him, Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps, And fix'd his head upon our battlements. (1.2.1)
