Lady Macduff embodies what motherhood should look like and she does not invest her time creating evil plots to kill other people. Whereas on the other hand, Lady Macbeth, not as bound to household duties, she sharpens her knowledgeable capabilities for the use of her own and the power which she holds.

Death by Macduff (A Literary Analysis Of The Importance Of Act 4 Scene 2) When you are a child you think that your dad is going to protect you from everything because that’s what a fathers role is.

My view on human nature is that it is affected by a person’s attitude and their environment. The attitude comes from the “Seven Deadly Sins.” All of us adapt to an environment that will require one of the traits from the seven sins.

There are some people though that shows it more than others.
