Seeing the dagger...
He see's the dagger just before he kills Duncan.
The dagger that Macbeth sees symbolizes the desire to kill Duncan.
"Is this a dagger which I see before me..."
Macbeth hears the voices as the goes to bed on the night that he murdered Duncan.
'Still it cried "Sleep no more!" to all the house:
"Glamis hath murder'd sleep, and therefore Cawdor
Shall sleep no more; Macbeth shall sleep no more."' (Duncan's ghost)
Seeing Banquos ghost...
Macbeth ordered Banquo to be murdered after suspicions of been over ruled.
Macbeth's anxiety got the best of him and he started to see Banquo's ghost around.
Macbeth struggled to hide his guilt.
"Avaunt! and quit my sight! let the earth hide thee!
Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold;
Thou hast no speculation in those eyes
Which thou dost glare with!" Macbeth says as he sees Banquo's ghost.
The first apparition...
The first apparition is an armored head that appears and tells Macbeth,
"Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! beware Macduff;
Beware the thane of Fife. Dismiss me. Enough."
The second apparition
The second apparition that appears was a bloody child that said,
"Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn
The power of man, for none of woman born
Shall harm Macbeth."
The third apparition
The third apparition is a crowned child holding a tree, the child holding the tree says to Macbeth,
"Be lion-mettled, proud; and take no care
Who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are:
Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until
Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill
Shall come against him."
The fourth apparition
The fourth apparition to appear was a show of eight kings, all crowned and some holding sceptres, the last apparition doesn't say anything to Macbeth, but Macbeth says what he sees,
"Thou art too like the spirit of Banquo. Down!
Thy crown does sear mine eye-balls. And thy hair,
Thou other gold-bound brow, is like the first.
A third is like the former. Filthy hags!
Why do you show me this? A fourth! Start, eyes!
What, will the line stretch out to the crack of doom?
Another yet! A seventh! I'll see no more:
And yet the eighth appears, who bears a glass
Which shows me many more; and some I see
That two-fold balls and treble scepters carry:
Horrible sight! Now, I see, 'tis true;
For the blood-bolter'd Banquo smiles upon me,
And points at them for his.
