At this scene, it’s also when Hamlet decides to understand the mistakes that he has made and face the consequences, but not be afraid because that’s how his fate ended up to be. Secondly, Hamlet understands the value that life gives because he told Horatio not to kill himself. When Horatio admits that he’s, “more an antique Roman than a Dane” (V.II.360), Hamlet quickly tells Horatio, “if thou didst ever hold me in thy heart,/ Absent thee from felicity awhile/ And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain/ To tell my story” (V.II.367-370). Instead of letting Horatio kill himself, he says to postpone the happiness of death because he needs to tell people tell his story.
He repeats “because” to make himself believe carrying out his duty of killing the enemy soldier was the right thing to do. He had to put aside his morals and kill the enemy before the enemy kills him.“Yes; quaint and curious war is! You shoot a fellow down you’d treat if met where any bar is or help to half-a-crown”(Hardy 20).The speaker is reflecting on his integrity and how in certain situations you would not kill someone who you could have been friends with. Even though he killed the man he feels guilty and questions his own
Ultimately, Brutus just wishes to keep Rome safe, as a result of this he must eliminate a threat- Caesar and his rule. With all things considered, Brutus’s loyalty to Rome made him betray and kill Caesar, for he feared the damage Caesar’s rule would cause to the country where Brutus’ loyalty lies. While many see Caesar’s assassination as a betrayal, it should be seen as an act of patriotism. Brutus practiced all his actions with good intentions and a goal of protecting Rome.

They mock him, taunting him about how far he has fallen. He responds in anger, wanting to hear more prophecies. He obviously feels more entitled now, and his ambition has thoroughly succeeded in corrupting him to the point of no return. He is now king; his friend (though, in his eyes as of late, his enemy,) Banquo, is dead and out of the way; and he is on a mission to kill any others who stand in his way and jeopardize his crown. The witches inform him that none of women born will kill him, but Macbeth still insists that he will kill not only Macduff, but his entire family and staff, just to be on the safe side of things.
