Flashcards in Scene 1 Act 3 Deck (8):
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."
Macbeth; manipulating the murderers
"Both of you know Banquo was your enemy,"
Macbeth; telling the murderers the he has his reasons for Banquo's murder and that it needs to stay quiet
"That I to your assistance do make love, masking the business from the common eye for sundry weighty reasons."
Macbeth; cold, doesn't not care about Fleance's death
"Fleance his son, that keeps him company, whose absence is no less material to me,"
