This action, however, costs him his life and other’s lives. In “The Crucible”, John Proctor does not confess to witchcraft. They told him if he confessed, he could live happily with his wife, Elizabeth. He refuses to confess, but after he speaks with Elizabeth, he decides to confess. The judges start writing his confession papers and he changes his mind to keep his “good” name.
Had he had a close friend die before the war, it is certain that he would not lie to their mother about how it happened, nor would he not show any emotion, so this interaction displays how his ability to display emotion has been impeded. In addition, the entire situation that Paul goes through when his father “drags [him] along to a table with a lot of others.”(p. 166) He sees that they don’t understand what war is like at all, as when “a head-master shakes hands with [him] and says: ‘So you come from the front? What is the spirit like out there? Excellent, eh? Excellent?’” (p.
Conversely, however, when Odysseus and his crew attempt to make their way home after visiting Aeolus, Odysseus’ belief in the supremacy of his own abilities gets him into trouble. Odysseus neglects to inform his crew what the bag he received from Aeolus holds, arousing their suspicion. Furthering his folly, Odysseus explains that he was “Exhausted from minding the sail the whole time / By myself. I wouldn’t let any of my crew / Spell me, because I wanted to make good time” (10.37-40). The lack of trust between Odysseus and his crew stems from Odysseus’ overconfidence in his own mental faculties and the subsequent lack of effective communication between Odysseus and those he captains.
In war and love: IIsa, Rick, and Louis find it extremely difficult to maintain neutrality. Rick avoids being involved in anything to do with politics and pretends to be non-partisan. He refuses to say anything about the war and fails to listen to Carl when he makes numerous attempts to inform him of the underground meetings. However, later on, Rick changes from being neutral and becomes committed just as the USA discarded neutrality in 1941. His compassion for the allies is evident in many events, such as when he refused to authorize a Deutsche Bank worker from gaining entry into his Casino back rooms but his links with the allies become more obvious as the movie progresses.
Odysseus suffered the consequence of being away from his son, Telemachus, and his wife, Penelope for 20 years. Odysseus was told by Athena and other gods, what to do during his journey. All of them told Odysseus that he couldn’t tell his men because they’d suffer a consequence. Odysseus listened to Athena and the gods because he only thought about himself and didn 't think about what his crew would say or do. When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die.
Beverly conveniently points out that he was too unstable to be an FBI agent in her first conversation with Will. Bev: “Never been an FBI agent?” Will: "Strict screening procedures.“ Bev: "Detects instability. You unstable?” He is treated sensitively and cautiously by many of the main characters on the show. Alana warns Jack, “Don’t let him get too close.” indicating that Jack should take responsibility for Will’s well-being because he is not strong enough to take responsibility for his own well-being. There is apparently some precident for worrying about Will that the audience does not know, so we take the characters’ word for it.
Rudy’s teacher as well did not believe in him. When Rudy tried to get on the bus that was bringing the children to the Notre dame college, his teacher stopped him.

Him not knowing this allows him to believe that this is God’s unfairness to him. Surviving on his own seems to be a big relief considering he doesn’t has to look after his father and he gets to keep his own rations for himself and not share with his father. Point of view, irony, setting, and symbols all pull this story together to show depressing times that should never happen to any race no matter what the crime. Light is needed when lost in the darkness of night. One that doesn’t have “light” can get lost and never find themselves a right path which can lead to more troubles than what should have
There has never been any blacks living in the subdivision and therefore Linder warns the family that if they stay there, there might be rebels in the area to throw them out of the neighborhood. This shows one of the consequences and obstacles that prevents the Younger family to achieve the American Dream. Linder also makes a deal with the Younger family to move by paying them with money. Although, by not taking the money does not mean, in Mama’s viewpoint, “…we wasn 't fit to walk the earth” (Hansberry 143). Linder’s purpose of paying them money makes him low-key.
