Response to Macbeth Act I

Explain what these lines mean.

Glamis thou art,and Cawdor, and shalt be/What thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature;/It is too full o’ ‘th’ milk of human kindness/To catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great,/Art not without ambition,but without/The illness should not attend it.

As Glamis and Cawdor I should do what I was promised to do. But I do fear death, but it is to much for the human kindness to take in. I would be great not with ambition, but without. Ambition should not be the only reason.
