Yet there was still hope that Macbeth would learn to turn back from these ways, as he had still felt guilt after Banquo’s murder, but he did not.

If a man told a lie, he will make more lies to make the situation looks true. Once a lie begins, it will never cease. That is, one lie leads to another. Macbeth and Scar probably are such, they murder their king to get the property of the country, but also have to kill more people to maintain this position. Macbeth killed Banquo, Macduff's son and wife, he tries to hide his evil plan under people's eyes.

These ambitions are best if avoided because you can really hurt yourself or harm others. For example, Macbeth was a loyal soldier to his king Duncan but he later turned on him and killed him in his sleep so he could become king.

This is portrayed when Macbeth when he kills Banquo and his son because his greed sees them as a threat to his throne, killing the king for power above all mortals, and his fate ultimately leading to his death and freeing time. Macbeth has done countless sins in order to keep his rightful position as king, though his greed for power has led to him killing his best friend Banquo because the witches have predicted that Banquo’s descendants will be king. “Thou shalt get kings, though thou be none.”
But I ignored their counsel, though that course would have avoided many griefs for us” (Homer 176) . Odysseus's leadership skills improve through the challenges he faces in the book, especially after the Cyclops incident. He thought it would be a good idea to wait so he could finally face and see the cyclops instead of to escape while they could, like his men wanted to. Due to Odysseus's curiosity his men weren't able to escape when they had the chance to and had to suffer being held hostage because of Odysseus's poor leadership skills. Another way Odysseus showed horrible leadership in the beginning was when he put himself before his crewman stating, “I asked my comrades to cast lots to see which men would dare to lift that stake with me and grind it into the Cyclops’ eye when sweet sleep overtook him” (Homer 179).

He decided to trap them all without any weapons and kill them all.
He does not want to kill Macduff because he has already killed his whole family. This causes Macduff to have more reason in wanting to kill Macbeth. It would have been avoided for Macbeth to run into Macduff if he have not approached him first, since he no longer needs interaction with blood of thine already. Erin Connelly furthers the discussion on the conflict between Macbeth and Macduff by stating, “manliness is a conditional characteristic, consistently defined in opposition to other attributes” (Connelly 111). Macbeth being boastful about murdering all of Macduff’s family is camouflaging his true fears towards his pathway to the throne.

People are most vulnerable and gullible when they are in trouble. The presence of conflict causes some to be persuaded very easily because they allow emotions to dictate decisions and control logic. Pathos is used in literature in these exact oments. Simba from the Lion King experiences harsh persuasion at the hands of pathos. Scar advises the confused and distraught young cub stating “the king is dead and if it weren’t for you he’d still be alive… run, run away and never return.”
In “Civil War” by Chinua Achebe, in order to survive Jonathan Iwegbu has to let go of what he lost. For example, when the “tief-man” and his people took Jonathan’s money he didn’t try to lie about it he gave the money to them because he doesn’t care about money; he’s never needed it before so why should he keep it (363). Afterwards, he could have acted out or been very angry but he wasn’t -he let it go. When his son died he most likely felt terrible, but he didn’t let that put him in a negative mood. He realized he has to let go of his son because there is nothing he could do to bring him back.
