This quote supports the theme because Okonkwo’s fear of weakness lead to his irrational actions such as killing Ikemefuna, which turned some of the Ibo clan against him, including his own son. His fear of failure is what drove Okonkwo to kill himself when it became clear that he could not achieve his dream, which lead to the further falling apart of his clan by symbolizing the loss of hope. Right after Okonkwo kills Ikemefuna, which Obierika advises him not to do, Okonkwo begins to doubt himself, but immediately pushes the fear away, in denial.

When Okonkwo kills Ikemefuna in order to try to conquer his fear, he went against Obierika 's advice.
