Socrates enjoyed how Agathon phrased his speech meticulously. He believes that all the others who have given a speech about love have done a great job, but he does not think they tell the truth about love. He asks if he could say his speech differently and to ask Agathon some questions about his speech and Phaedrus allows him to. Socrates asks whether love is a love of something. An example that he brought up is a father is a father of a son or daughter and Agathon agrees.
This quote is important to keep thought of because some men can be very open minded and pleasing, but men only care about getting woman pregnant and leaving them afterwards. A complete definition of love being a joke can allow us to understand how people are very self centered.

Cyrano does make a point to himself that even though one side of him said to not tell Roxane how he feels about her, a bigger part of him said to do what he thinks is best and make Roxane happy over himself. Cyrano also shows that he is someone who does not want give up on what he loves. “Yes, you’ve robbed me of everything: the laurels of glory, the roses of love! But there’s one thing you can’t take away from me.” (Rostand 233).
That is freedom. This is nothing else.” (Rand, 101) All along he knew his happiness came from being alone, yet it wasn’t till now he realized the great burden of constantly serving others. His great epiphany derived the question, “What is my life, if I am but to bow, to agree and obey?” (Rand, 97) At this point he realizes his curse of exising as inquisive is actually his “greatest virtue.” (Rand) The thought of existing for others becomes repelling and Equality instead makes his goal to fight for the freedom on man and for the welfare that comes from
Lennie and George rely on each other in many ways. George announces that even though he may portray through his actions that he seems mad at Lennie, he is never actually mad at him. This symbolizes companionship versus loneliness because it informs the reader that in a companionship there will be things to overcome in order to have a companion versus being lonely.

He is honestly the sweetest boy I have ever met, he is always there for me when I need someone. He knows me, he knows when my mood changes just the littlest, he is always trying to make me happier and make sure I am okay. I still get butterflies sometimes also. I don’t think other people should judge other peoples relationships if they are with someone of a different race. It isn’t fair to the two in the relationship because you don’t know that person.

Charlie’s alienation is much more complex, he is not physically isolated from his friends and family. Despite this, Charlie hides his feelings.
Though if I had to choose from Brutus and Cassius I would have to say the Brutus is my favorite. I really don’t know how you can not like Brutus, he seems like a all around great guy. He is very kind and a big hearted person and he doesn’t know how to put himself first. I hope that whenever people think of me they see a little bit of Brutus because I don’t know how good I do but I try to put everyone first whenever I can and be as kind as possible. If you don’t want to be like Brutus I think you’re crazy because he’s just an exceptional
It’s a sweet song from a boy to his love. It’s also a brutally honest song. The girl whose image the songwriter paints doesn’t come off all that pretty. This portrait of a flawed character makes it almost feels like the tables have been turned in the relationship and the guy now has the higher ground.
