So essentially, if the seventh man carried out his plan, it would have resulted in both of their deaths because “…it was too late. A wave like a huge snake with its head held high was racing towards the shore…it rose up behind K…the next instant, the wave had swallowed him (Murakami 138).” According to Nancy Sherman’s editorial “The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt,” the feeling that the seventh man was experiencing is classified as subjective (irrational) guilt where someone feels responsible despite the fact that they have done nothing wrong (Sherman 154). The application of this term in the seventh man’s situation rings true because he could not have possibly been able to save K. even if he tried due to the fact that the wave that swept him away is something that cannot be controlled. Many people placed in similar circumstances where

By having an affair, Willy not only betrayed Linda but he also betrayed Biff as he lost his trust. The reason why he might betray a lot is because he is afraid of betrayal and so in order to overcome it and not feel like he was ever betrayed, he goes and betrays. As mentioned above, Willy reflects Biffs’ failure in business as a reflection of his own dreams of succeeding although he only succeeded for a short while in his life.
However, he murdered Polonius impulsively. Hamlet’s inability to make decisions properly led to his impulsive actions, which caused the death of the people he cared about. He had many opportunities to kill Claudius and complete his revenge before anyone else died, but he refused to act. Hamlet himself realized that and said, “But I am pigeon-liver 'd and lack gall / To make oppression bitter.” Hamlet didn’t feel he was capable of righting the wrong Claudius committed. If Hamlet had accepted Claudius as king and forgiven his mother or had completely committed to carrying out revenge, the play would have ended much differently, but Hamlet’s indecisiveness presented him from doing either.

In his mind, he believes that Baba will send Ali and Hassan away, and, as a result, he will finally gain some peace. To Amir’s surprise, Hassan confesses to stealing his gifts without hesitation symbolizing “Hassan’s final sacrifice for [him]” (105). At that moment, Amir realizes that Hassan knew of his betrayal, which added to his already guilty conscience. Hassan could have easily told Baba the truth and he would have believed him because”[everyone] knew that Hassan never lied”, which, in turn, would ruin Amir’s relationship with his father (105). He probably knew that Amir was unworthy of his sacrifice, that he was the “snake in the grass, the monster in the lake”, but he lied for Amir’s own benefit
