Madame Defarge creates a whirlwind of trouble and pain for all of the people she encounters. Throughout the novel, Madame Defarge acts cold and unfeeling; she wants to kill Charles Darnay because his cousins killed her family. Madame Defarge feels nothing, her heart contains only pure hatred ever since her family died. She strives to harm any person associated with her dark past, to hurt anyone that has hurt her, or even has the same bloodline as someone who hurt her.
The origin of Malala Yousafzai’s call to change start when the Taliban started to get rid of girls’ education and rights. The Taliban, a terrorist group that took control of the Swat Valley, inflicted laws that reduced a woman’s rights to be only half of a man’s and laws that restricted women’s rights. The Taliban and General Zia created rules that were unfair like how girls should not have an education. (Rowell 10, Yousafzai 31) Because of all the protests for women’s rights, the Taliban eventually let girls go to school with many restrictions such as wearing a shiela to cover their entire face.

Beowulf finally gets the chance to execute Grendel, but in this endeavor, he attempts to make him suffer as much as possible. He slowly tortures Grendel and even lets him go in the hopes he bleeds to death.

Life is not easy; people need to make moral decisions in life to discover themselves like Ernest Hemingway stated: “So far, about morals, I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after”(Ernest Hemingway). When Captain Torres walked into the revolutionary’s barbershop, the barber had to make a life changing decision about whether or not he should or should not kill Captain Torres, who is his enemy. In the story “ Just Lather, that’s all” one of the main ideas is that moral decisions help define one 's character. This shows that moral decision making reflects one 's destiny, as the barber considers both outcomes; either to kill or not to kill. Firstly, the barber contemplates on killing Captain Torres, the executioner, so he would stop killing the rebels, but does not want to be a murderer.
