When Farid confronts Amir about his business in Afghanistan, he tells the family about his quest to find his nephew, Sohrab. They call him “an honorable man” and “a true Afghan” which makes Amir uncomfortable because in his mind, those descriptions define Hassan, not himself (238). At first, he does not agree with them and still views himself as a coward. However, those comments also nourish the idea that because he made the selfless decision to risk his life to save Sohrab, maybe he really can be able to adopt some of Hassan 's honorable qualities and forgive himself.

Because Hamlet related everything back to his death, he was not able to see Laertes as an entity separated from the madness.

It turns out that the material handed me to guide me in my decision-making capacity was a man-made interpretation of man-made data. Isn’t that right?”’ (Asimov 3) Back in “The Necklace”, Madame Loisel’s husband tells her to lie to her friend about what happened to the diamond necklace.
