With this intention, the man had an unreasonable motive for killing the old man and the way he had planned it so well. Henceforth, he could be seen as a calculated killer or a delusional madman. Through his crimes, can be argued that he should be put in a mental institute or put in prison for the rest of his life. Based on the evidence provided, it's a better decision to convict the man into a mental institute.

This shows an act of foolishness as leader because he did not notify his men of the dangerous obstacle coming towards him, but just keeps put to leave his men to fend for themselves. An example of Odysseus’ arrogance is when Odysseus brags to Cyclops and yells out, “O Cyclops! Would you feast on my companions? Puny am I, in a Caveman’s hands? How do you like the beating that we gave you…” (L. 390-392).
Huck’s initial thought, to treat people equally, is countered by society’s need for separation. Huck promises to keep Jim's secret after he learns of his escape from Miss Watson. “Well I did. I said I wouldn’t, and I’ll stick to it. Honest injun, I will.
In the story, “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?” is about a man, Sergei Goralick, and his magical goldfish that granted him three wishes. Based on Sergei’s own speech, thoughts, and actions, readers can infer that deep down he is depressed and lonely. Sergei kept himself distant from everyone and was not very fond of strangers knocking on his door. One day a boy, Yonatan, showed up at Sergei’s front steps and insisted on asking questions for a movie he was filming, but Sergei was not appealed. As Yonatan still tried to question he was intrigued by Sergei’s magical goldfish, Sergei became overprotective and killed the boy.
Furthermore, they understood the importance of humility and practiced respect for others, especially the gods. Many people of Antiquity were polytheistic, meaning having many gods.

Furthermore, from narratives and poems, Socrates believed that, “These ideas are worthy of the gods, filled with the little gems of virtue on the inside.
I think in the story, “Two Friends”, friendship was presented more realistically because of the events that happened in the story. I thought the story “Damon and Pythias” didn’t show a realistic approach to friendship because of how Damon didn’t hesitate and trusted his life to Pythias. Although it’s nice that they deeply care for each other, the part where they would die for each other was too exaggerated. In “Two Friends”, the way Morissot and Sauvage act around each other shows that they’re good friends. “Often they spent half a day side by side…Inevitably they had struck up a friendship.” (Maupassant, 1234).
Leonardi Shish Philosophy 202 4/24/16 On friendship and virtue In today’s world where individualism is very predominant, people rarely take into account the philosophical view of friendship.

In today’s world we are who set goals and choose our path in life depending on the values we possess.

Road rage in modern times is equivalent to this act of violence upon another human. Oedipus is determined to find out who killed the King of Thebes and he announces to the people of Thebes that he will kill the man or men that killed their king. He goes on to say that Thebes suffers due to the murder of King Laios, and he must put an end to it. “Then once more I must bring what is dark to light” (Sophocles 1071). The gods and goddesses demand justice and he must find the man that killed the king, his father, Laios.
Also your friends should be happy that you are doing things to look out for your own good because friends want the best for each other and doing things to make yourself happy is what is best for yourself. Also, most of the time you are able to look out for your own good, and the good of your friends. If there is a conflict where making yourself happy will cause your friend to be unhappy than as long as you do what is right, you and your friend should both be okay with it because friends love and care about each other. As long as you do the right thing you will not be punished for
