Banquo; suspicious of how Macbeth has become King

"Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all,
As the weird women promised; and I fear thou played'st most foully for it."


Macbeth; commentating that it means nothing to be king, unless his position is assured.

"To be thus is nothing, but to safety thus. Our fears in Banquo stick deep;"


Macbeth; jealous that Banquo's children will be kings

"Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown,"


Macbeth; saying he will never be well as long as Banquo lives

"Who wear our health but sickly in his life, which in his death were perfect."
