"There’s husbandry in heaven; Their candles are all out." This quote is spoken by Banquo, and uses a lot of figurative language. Banquo is saying that all of the "thrifty people" are in heaven, because they blow out their candles so early because nightfall has come early. This relates to the theme of darkness, and also is a sign that something bad is going to happen, because darkness hides dark truths.
