“Thrice to thine, and thrice to mine,
And thrice again, to make up nine.
Peace!  The charm’s wound up.”  – Macbeth

There aren’t many quotes in Shakespeare involving numbers, certainly none involving Pi.  But in my investigations I did learn that three and nine were considered magic numbers in Shakespeare’s day, where superstitions were common.  Here the famous three witches of Macbeth are using 3 and 9 in their spell casting.  Happy 3.14159… day!
