by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
Translation by François Pierre Guillaume Guizot (1787 - 1874)

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Language: English 
Available translation(s): ITA
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, 
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.

Demain, demain, demain
Language: French (Français)  after the English 
Demain, demain, demain,
se glisse ainsi à petits pas d'un jour à l'autre,
jusqu'à la dernière syllabe du temps inscrit ;
et tous nos hier n'ont travaillé, les imbéciles, qu'à nous abréger
le chemin de la mort poudreuse. Éteins-toi, éteins-toi, court flambeau :
la vie n'est qu'une ombre qui marche ; elle ressemble à un comédien
qui se pavane et s'agite sur le théâtre une heure ;
après quoi il n'en est plus question; c'est un conte
raconté par un idiot avec beaucoup de bruit et de chaleur,
et qui ne signifie rien.
