Significant Passages
"My way of life Is fall'n into the sear, the yellow leaf, And that which should accompany old age, As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have; but, in their stead, Curses not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath, Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not." (V,iii, 22-28)
One's pride can lead to the absence of life's greatest joys.

Since he became king, Macbeth has become obsessed with power. He has become isolated from life's greatest joys, such as friends, love, and acceptance from his kingdom.
