Not only did her heart get shattered but she lost her love because she wanted to find a husband. Anaktoria betrayed Sappho’s love by going to find someone else’s love. She says: “you burn me” (Sappho “Fragment 38” p.77) This quotation shows us how Sappho felt the burn of betrayal after the loss of her love. Would Sappho’s words show this kind of anger if Anaktoria would have stayed? She also speaks about how she feels forgotten and how she wishes she wouldn’t be.
If loves take risks, then, might it be the same for friends? Trusting and understanding someone is not easy, but these two, one day, will open up a new challenge for two people to face. In the comedy and fantasy play, "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare, it is evident that honesty and empathy are the qualities that make up true friendship. Through the character Hermia, she shares her real thoughts and empathize with her friend no matter what situation they are in, however, it is also evident that being too truthful and empathize with others can cause betrayal in friendship. First, Hermia demonstrates her trait of honesty towards her best friend, Helena, though there is conflict going on between them.
Tybalt continues to harass Romeo while Romeo is simply complementing Tybalt in return.We see the best is brought out of Romeo as he is showing maternity and respect for his ‘Family.’ Overall, love is a marvelous force for good because it is everlasting through time and hardships, it brings people together, and it has the potential to bring the best out of people. Love outshines hate in ‘Romeo and Juliet’, disregarding the fact that it is labeled as a tragedy. In “Sonnet 116” true love is proven to be something that doesn't grow old or alter with us, but instead, it grows as more connections are made. The irresistible love read about in books and fairy tales and the movies we see about ‘Happily Ever Afters’, can be a dream come true after
To show us love would still be love if not called lve and that she would still love Romeo if he weren't a Montague. This line was one of the most famous in the whole play because it showed us how names carry no meaning but are only as significant as what the name holds. Romeo coveys his feelings towards his name with a sympathetic and bitter tone to reply to the pain Juliette feels.“take thee at thy word: Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized; Henceforth I never will be Romeo”. Romeo shows understanding in the attitude in which he replies to Juliet.To give her comfort in the fact he will not be called Romeo from now on since his love dislikes. “By a name I know not how to tell thee who I am: My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself, Because it is an enemy to thee; Had I it written, I would tear the word”.
The heart wants what it wants. Before this obvious, but quite metaphorical statement , became a well known saying, it isn’t always true as pride in the way of the authenticity of love. In William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, he shows a clear exposition of this. Love can only grow if an individual is able to set aside their pride and allow themselves to be both vulnerable and receptive to authentic feelings. Benedick depicts that although many people fall in love and enjoy it, he will not be vulnerable to give himself to the world of love.
And, after his death, a perceptive drama critic – picking up on a phrase from his unbearably bleak play, “Camino Real” – observed that Tennessee Williams, at the end, “was writing about the power of violets cracking rocks.” Something like that could be said about the disciples’ lives as well. There was a line right down the middle for them: before and after. Before the Resurrection when they were roughed up, they despaired that death, not life, is in control of things. But after the Resurrection, no matter what happened to them – and worse things happened – they were convinced that love is the strongest power in the world, stronger even than death , and that “nothing in all creation can separate us from the love of Christ.” On Easter, they found the life-giving power of violets to crack rocks, and to crack open a tomb. On Easter morning, they saw an unmistakable demonstration of Who is in charge.
Due to her conforming nature she agrees with her husband’s disgust of the birthmark and his plan of removal. In “The Birthmark”, Georgiana was witnessed, eagerly drinking the potion made by her husband to rid her of the birthmark (Hawthorne 9). If Georgiana had been more assertive against the judgement of her husband she may have saved herself. This describes Georgiana’s last moments, “As the last crimson tint of the birthmark-- that sole token of human imperfection--faded from her cheek, the parting breath of the now perfect woman passed into the atmosphere…” (Hawthorne 10). Demonstration of each of their responsibilities is expressed.
And then begins my verse your Breauty to extol, To glorify my love as if I were not grim. But who would believe my verse in time to come, when I inscribed with your unspoiled hair and eyes, They would spurn you after I die, and then They cried this poet had lied. Yet it mattered to me not, I didn 't long for being well-praised, But begetting so rare a beauty from an antique Song That would polish my pen, and embellish my grave. Love alters not when the decease of live looms, It carries on to the age of date and doom. The sonnets were done, echoing times from another age.
When Lancelot allows the damsel he would not sleep with to accompany him, the text explains his silence by referencing the “wound [love] has given him,” and notes that “there is one whose remedy he would gladly seek ….” (Vv. 1293–1368). Caesura creates allusion to Guinevere, building up the idea that Lancelot has been hurt by previous romantic involvement with her, yet allowing the audience to draw the conclusion themselves. The mystery and reliance on the reader’s imagination is available because Lancelot and
Aeschylus once claimed “And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our own will, comes wisdom by the awful grace of god.” Aeschylus shows that pain has incredible effects on the being. Pain plagues and diminishes the mind, body and heart, corrupting the soul itself. In Erich Maria Remarque 's All Quiet on the Western Front, the narrator, Paul Baumer, along with his fellow soldiers, experience these pains almost constantly throughout the story. Due to the traumatizing situations the men are put into during war, they are incapable of readjusting to humanity outside of the battlegrounds. They have been completely dissolved by the incredible pain they experience.
