Righty right, my bad.

And surely not Macbeth: "Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that 
struts and frets his hour upon the stage/And then is heard no more."

or Titus Andronicus:

   "O, why should nature build so foul a den,
    Unless the gods delight in tragedies?"

or Coriolanus:

   "In that day's feats,
    When he might act the woman in the scene,
    He proved best man i' th' field, and for his meed
    Was brow-bound with the oak."

or, at a stretch, Othello:

   "Lechery, by this hand; an index and obscure
    prologue to the history of lust and foul thoughts."

or, least of all, Macbeth:

   "Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more."
