This idea was then further elucidated in the words of Homer, “The stool he let fly hit the man’s shoulder. Odysseus only shook his head, as he walked on” (Homer 685). After Odysseus came up with the plan to sabotage them from the inside, he went to the suitors, where he asked for food -disguised as a beggar-. After asking for food, the haughty suitor Antinous, bashfully threw a stool, just to defend for that meager comment, “A pity you have more looks than hearts”. Although Odysseus could’ve ended his life right now and then, he waited patiently; That is the true format of self-control, holding one’s eager covets in the most crucial moments.

Another example from the story is when Danny has a recurring dream about a man coming to hurt him with a mallet (coincidence?). He dreamed of running down the halls as the “large dark shape, holding some sort of mallet, came for him, swinging it back and forth into the walls, saying ‘COME OUT HERE AND TAKE YOUR MEDICINE!’”. (King 291). This well supports the claim because the dark shape may be reminding Danny of his father, the night Jack got drunk and broke his arm for messing up his office. While his dad wasn’t a mallet wielding psychopath, the hotel may be trying to direct Danny’s dreams towards relating to that night in order to distance the Torrence's from each other.
While odysseus is away, the suitors stay at his home and try to win over his wife Penelope, they give themselves completely to gluttony. They have a nightly feast, and consume everything in the palace. “A carver lifted cuts of each roast meat to put on trenchers / before the two. He gave them cups of gold, / and these, the steward as he went his rounds / filled and filled again” (175-178). They are consumed by temptation and laziness, and spend all of their time giving into desire.

People tend to try to stay as close to those relationships and attempt to make the good relationships last, making friendship become part of their morals. This being said, when someone starts gain power, they are mostly able to keep their morals. In the book Night--a story about the firsthand experience of a boy who lives through The Holocaust written by Elie Wiesel--Elie and his father are in the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz. Elie’s father asks one of the guards where the bathroom is and, “he dealt my father such a clout that he fell to the ground, crawling back to his place on all fours”(48). Elie was so surprised and fear stricken that he did not even react to it, but he stated, “I thought only: I shall never forgive them for that”(48).
In chapter seven of Night, by Elie Wiesel, one of the most emotional scenes is shared. The Jews are being transported to a different location and the officers begin to throw bread crumbs as a sort of sick, twisted game. They enjoy watching the Jews turn on each other and maim one another just for the smallest crumb of bread. In my cartoon, the first quadrant is the scene where young Eliezer talks about the train ride and how claustrophobic everyone became due to the space provided and the amount of Jews crammed in. The next frame is of the father crawling out of the mob while our main character sat watching.
