Yes, Autrey was more both mentally and physically courageous, but Odysseus showed multiple acts of physical courage and started to accomplish a task that they knew was going to be difficult. Autrey thinks that “maybe I was in the right place at the right time, and good things happen for good people” (Lee 2), which may also be the case for Odysseus. In the end, both Autrey and Odysseus were courageous in their own ways, but both took a risk they knew was going to be hard. They proved through their acts that they were courageous, and are still being talked about and rewarded
True Courage-To Kill A Mockingbird Steve Maraboli once said, “It takes bravery to recognize where in your life you are your own poison… it takes courage to do something about it.” The two words, bravery, and courage are often used interchangeably. Although they both refer to dauntlessness and intrepidity, further examination of their meanings reveals that, contrary to popular belief, they are not synonyms. Bravery refers to the ability to fearlessly confront a dangerous or difficult task while courage has the more complicated meaning of being able to preserve through overwhelming situations despite being engulfed by fear. Courage, unlike bravery, is not feeling more powerful than the obstacle one is facing rather it is the force that allows an individual to continue

Beowulf was a hero. He was one who has battled what most of us will fear. He won when most of us will fail. But still, like any other person, Beowulf has a weakness; and that weakness is the lack of self control. Lack of self control against greed.
It touches too many families throughout our nation. The scars it left behind will be there for years. We, as a nation, have the power to do something about this and yet our government refuses to do so. Common sense isn’t as simple as breathing in air; it comes with a lot of “ifs” and “buts”. The ill bureaucracy, the biased rules and regulations, the malfunctioning law - these have all become so fundamental to our daily lives that we no longer recognize a life without these burdens.
Other people put him in situations where his defensive side turns into his bad side, but Ender always wishes for events to be ended without violence. His compassion is his strongest trait, and it bonds people to him; his ruthlessness wins their undoubted faith in him as a commander. Or at least that is what Colonel Graff
Arthur Miller makes it clear that having a good name is more important that the truth, Proctor, Parris, and Danforth all decided their name and reputation was more important than the lives of innocent people. Their decisions went deeper and deeper and made things get worse. Having a good name effected how Proctor acted because he doesn 't want to tell the truth about things he knows just to keep his name. Reputation effects Parris because, he doesn 't want to go against the bible and be accused of working with the devil. Lasly a good name affects Judge Danforth 's decisions because he sees that later he has killed innocent people, but does not want to come forward because he 's killed to many innocents and people will look at him different.
Equality believes wholeheartedly in individualism and the concept of preference which relates strongly to judging others’ true intents and motives. Rand’s short essay explains that, while it is not something many would like to believe of their loved ones, many times people are not simply mistaken or misinformed, but rather know the evil in their actions and proceed to carry them out regardless (Rand, Paragraph 14). While it is true that some members of the Council have been brainwashed and truly believe what they say, the original intent of the many strict laws in place were malicious. Looking in at the society from the outside provides an objective point of view that makes clear that the statutes in action are there to control the citizens and not to help or protect
A tragic hero is a good person overall who has a tragic flaw that causes him to fall, but after which he gains redemption and turns out a better man. Heroism is shown in many different ways, as the way john shows it is unique. I say his heroism is unique because he risks his own life because he refuses to lie. He is willing to go to any extent to stop the foolish hysteria, even as far as to reveal himself as a sinner and blacken his name and in doing so, harming his little-left
His "raging temper" led to him estranging himself from all his closest friends, and he witnessed as he became "a bane to the people". What separates Beowulf from Heremod is that he has a measure of restraint, and he is both "physically strong and acute of mind"(1843). Beowulf is considered a true hero in the eyes of Hrothgar and others not just because of his ability to kill monsters, but because he subscribes to keeping the peace when necessary. The best heroes do not threaten civilized society during peacetime through needless fighting, but uphold it by being patient and prudent, as Beowulf

This generates a more confusing story to comprehend for the reader. This sense of uncertainty leads to constantly questioning the validity of the witness. While certain characters certainly start to develop more trust as the story goes on, there is always that sense of doubt in the back of the readers mind questioning just how accurate is the information that is being given. Another major problem is that when a situation does occur, every character is always in attempt to claim their innocence. The whole story is making accusations based upon who stole the diamond, therefore there is never going to be a point where any character openly admits to stealing the diamond.
Moral Courage is having the courage to go against other people 's’ morals and do what you believe is right . Most of the time there are obstacles in the way of doing so, such as people, the community, and yourself.
