Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5

It is important to note that this is Macbeth talking about life and not Shakespeare. When Lady Macbeth dies, Macbeth delivers this speech knowing his end is near. The way he has lived his life has lead to this point of view of the pointlessness of life.
