When Macbeth was thinking about Duncan as a king, he realized: “Besides, this Duncan/ Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been/ So clear in his great office, that his virtues/ Will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against/ The deep damnation of his taking-off.” (1.7.16-19) This quote stated his concerns of how he will be treated by people after the murder.

He lays his own dead corpse beneath the underpinning, as one may say, and hangs his frowning picture on the wall, and, after thus converting himself into an Evil Destiny, expects his remotest great-grandchildren to be happy there!” (Hawthorne 226). Man’s greed is so inherently engrained in the being that man would be in charge of his own unhappiness. The fall of man is the original sin of greed.
