Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.William Shakespeare

DUNCAN. Is execution done on Cawdor? Are not
Those in commission yet return’d?
MALCOLM. My liege,
They are not yet come back. But I have spoke
With one that saw him die, who did report
That very frankly he confess’d his treasons,
Implored your Highness’ pardon, and set forth
A deep repentance. Nothing in his life
Became him like the leaving it; he died
As one that had been studied in his death,
To throw away the dearest thing he owed
As ’twere a careless trifle.
DUNCAN. There’s no art
To find the mind’s construction in the face:
He was a gentleman on whom I built
An absolute trust.
