We will proceed no further in this business. He hath honored me of late, and I have bought golden opinions from all sorts of people, Which would be worn now in their newest gloss, not cast aside so soon.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR BANQUO'S DEATH
Both of you know Banquo was your enemy.
I bear a charmed life, which must not yield to one of woman born.
Macbeth explains that he does not want to kill the King because he had praised his opinions. Macbeth seems as though he wants to wait for another time to become King while Duncan is taking opinions from other people.
As Macbeth tells the murderers that Banquo is their enemy it shows the reader that Macbeth will kill anyone that poses a threat to his throne. Even if it is one of his great friends
Macbeth shows his pride by thinking he cannot be killed because of the witches prophecy. He soon realizes that the witches told him wrong and this leads to his tragic death.
