Examples Of Self Restraint In The Odyssey

Good Essays
Odyssey Paragraph
Odysseus, in the book The Odyssey by Homer, and I both showed self restraint in multiple different ways. One way Odysseus demonstrates self control is after he stabs the cyclops eye and the book quotes “Arms thrown wide for any silly man who bolted” (907). This showed moderation by him not rushing by the cyclopes and instead waiting for a better time. Another way Odysseus showed Caution was when he and his men went on the island with the lotus and Odysseus said “clear the beach no one taste the lotus” (898). That shows moderation by him not eating the lotus when he could have. Similarly, I showed self restraint was when I was playing football and a guy shoved me in the back. Which is a block in the back which is not allowed.
