She gave up everything, even her life for those whom she loved, even though they biologically were not her children. The author of A Thousand Splendid Suns demonstrates the significance of motherly love through Nana, Laila, and Mariam. The novel gives the reader a better insight of how passionate a mother’s love for her children can be, and how far she may go for the love of her
Hippolyta was later slain by her sister. And Othera was later slain by a Greek hero named Bellerophontes. The reason why I think Othera a hero is because she wanted the life of a Bronze Age housemaid to come to an end and want all the genders of the world (including miss gender people and others) to be equal and not have women treated like slaves and servants for mankind. Just like Rosa Park, except she used peace and protest to fight against African American’s
Her whole purpose of killing Hrothgar’s friend and wreaking in Heorot is was to avenge Grendel’s death. After Grendel’s death, she channeled all that hatred and grief towards the people that harmed her child. Her love for her child lead her to commit these acts. Even though her actions are considered evil, it is natural to feel some sort of pity and sympathy for Grendel’s mother after her loss. Unlike Grendel, Grendel’s mother doesn't kill or destroy randomly.
In the beginng of the film, the main character goes through her sister getting "reaped" into the games. Through bravery, Katniss makes an enormous sacrifice by volunteering for her sister. Katniss promises both her mother and Prim that she would win for them and she also tells Gale to protect Prim. Mrs. Everdeen had already lost her husband in a mine explosion and Katniss does not want to see her mother in grief. Another reason The Hunger Games demonstrates sacrifice was the way both Katniss and Peeta were willing to kill themselves together rather than to have one of them be the victor.
After sacking a city, he carried off the beautiful Chryseis, priestess to Apollo. As priestesses were essentially mortal wives of the gods, Apollo was outraged when Chryseis was abducted and resolved to plague the Achaians until she was returned. After the death of many Greek warriors, Agamemnon consented to return the girl to Apollo, but his pride was wounded just as Apollo’s
Unfortunately, due to these infinite affairs, his wife, Hera (also the goddess of childbirth and marriage) grew in envy, and sought to relieve her rage upon all of his paramours. Likewise, Leto also received the goddess’ wrath for being with Zeus and getting impregnated. Hera cursed her, decreeing that she was not to give birth anywhere under the sun, thus intending for Leto to forever bear her children within her. Many of the gods pitied her, but few could help her. Finally, Poseidon, the god of the sea, revealed to Leto of an unknown land, fitting of Hera’s descriptions.
Antigone was happy that she was caught because she was able to show the people how brave she was to stand up against the king. Also, Antigone shows Creon and the people of Thebes that she wants to die for her actions by saying, “I’ll die in any case, whether you announce my execution or not. But if I die young, all the better (Line 442-443).” When she said this, we can clearly see that her love for a noble death is driving her thoughts and actions. At this point, she is almost asking the king to sentence her to death, which takes everyone by surprise. Later in the argument, Ismene comes up to them to try to take responsibility in the act with Antigone.
Laïsa does not tell Georges who his father is because she fears Alfred would murder their child to preserve his image. Georges marries a lovely young woman named, Zélie.

By the Code Noir, Zélie had to admit to her consequences, death is her fate because she hit her master.
Ironically, Zeus is said to punish liars, while he is the most deceptive god in Greece. Zeus was known for his numerous affairs and mistresses, and the problem was so pervasive that Greek women used to worry that their baby was Zeus’s. The most devious trick Zeus played was on Alcmene. He came to her as her husband and slept with her, all the while making her think she was loyal to her husband. This trick bore Hercules, but not all of Zeus’s romantic trips were so clever.
When Artemis caught him, she became enraged and turned his hounds on himself by turning him into a stag (Maicar). She was also very protective over nature and everything in it so when Agamemnon boasted to her about killing a stag in her sacred grove, she took revenge on him by calming the wind while Agamemnon was sailing to Troy for the Trojan War leaving him stranded. In order for the wind to be restored, Artemis insisted him to sacrifice his daughter, which he acquiesced to
