Atticus showed courage when he shot the rabid dog because he knew he was going to kill the dog because he’s a good shot but Heck Tate was relying on him to keep everyone safe and unharmed. He says that this isn’t courageous but I disagree because if he kills the dog and doesn’t miss. “ I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.

Several instances show in the novel that characters say something and their actions don’t match their word. For instance, when the Widow Douglas told Huck that he could not smoke because smoking was “a mean practice and wasn't clean” (2). Miss Watson herself, however, chewed tobacco. Other characters in the novel also serve as the form of satire to hypocrites. The duke, right away says that “ - all black men are thieves - ” (--).
Throughout the play, Oedipus makes the choice to be blind, both from a mental, and a literal stance, causing tension between him and those able to see. In searching for the killer of the previous king, Laius, Oedipus neglects to acknowledge that he could be a possible suspect, even when told that he was the murderer by esteemed prophet Tiresias.

I say you see and still are blind.” (Sophocles, 23).

Richard Connell does an exceptional job with incorporating the theme into his writing, and by this citation, he reveals to us the moral of The Most Dangerous Game; you must have empathy for all living creatures.

"I say we 're not peace officers here! This ain 't our job..."(Foreman 114).
Criminological portrait of Bob Ewell In Harper Lee’s novel “To kill a Mockingbird” we could see the life in the small town with wide spectrum of characters of various social status, but almost the same prejudices. Most of the inhabitants belong to middle class: they are white people, who have some small business, and other part of the town, who, despite the abolishing of slavery, still face pressure.

They would do anything to protect them, and to make them feel safe; so we should give them more credit for what they do. Don’t take dogs for granted, because they would never do that to you.

People nowadays assume things rather than actually knowing the truth. They judge people by things they hear or what they see on the outside rather than getting to know them and who they truly are on the inside.

The real truth though is she may disagree with Atticus’s ways but she is very courageous because she is trying to fight being a morphine addict.
