Harding endured shocking abuse by her mother and husband. Whilst, Macbeth is manipulated by his wife to continue to kill and preserve his power. After Macbeth retracts his decision and decides not to kill King Duncan, Lady Macbeth questions her husband’s masculinity: “What beast was’t, then, / That made you break this enterprise to me? / When you durst do it, then you were a man; / And to be more than what you were, you would / Be so much more the man” (1.7.29).

In William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the lust for revenge forces characters to appeal to their nature or their honor. After learning of his father’s death upon returning from Wittenberg, Hamlet dons the mask of madness and contemplates a means of exacting revenge against Claudius. While Hamlet ponders the ethereal consequences of murder and revenge, his constant self-reflection paralyzes him from taking action. On the other hand, Laertes, a loving brother and civil son, finds himself in the same situation as Hamlet: Laertes leaves for France only to return and discover that his father has been murdered. However, Laertes does not mirror Hamlet despite seeking justice for the same reasons.

Andrew Johnson was a man who was not afraid to speak out against Congress.
While Hamlet is hesitant Laertes is brash and impulsive. He even states that in his confrontation with King Claudius “Let come what comes, only I 'll be revenged Most thoroughly for my father.” (4.5.148-154) Laertes does not do much thinking when it comes to avenging his father. The opposite is said about Hamlet who spends too much time contemplating whether he should avenge his father. They both were in the same situation but went about it very differently.

So basically speaking, when he hesitated to murder Duncan, I kept irritating him by doubting his manhood until he felt the need to commit murder to prove himself the masculinity. I think that my remarkable strength of will persists through the murder of the king just as ambition affects me more strongly than my husband, Macbeth, before the crime. After Macbeth murdered Duncan, I steadied his nerves by praising him and saying positive things about him about the murder. However, after the murder, I start to get slowly mad. However, I am unfortunate about the fact that I commit a suicide at the end of the play due to my inability to deal with the legacy of the crimes Macbeth and I

The man with that chequered past was Abraham Lincoln, who to begin with might have been written off as one of life’s born losers, but who had the perseverance to shrug off his early reverses and become one of America’s greatest Presidents. His story provides living testimony to the fact that men and women are defeated only when they stop trying.
In addition, he paid large sums as gifts or bribes to the officials of the company. Soon, however, he realised that British expectations were boundless and tried to wriggle out from under them; this time with the help of the Dutch. However, the British defeated the Dutch at the Battle of Chinsurah in November 1759 and retaliated by forcing him to abdicate in favor of his son-in-law Mir Qasim.
