No matter the journey and harsh things that happened to them nothing knocked them down and if it did effect them then they came back stronger and it made them more eager to get to freedom. If you really want something and you don 't stop you can definitely get what you deserve but it won 't get handed to you.
In today’s world people are still falsely accused of things and that shows that not much has changed over all these years. This also shows how inhumane war can be, people treat their enemies like they’re not person. Personally I could never fight in war because I would never be able to shoot a person by choice unless I absolutely had to for self-defense. The main idea in Candide is that everything that happens is for the best or at least that is what Professor Pangloss’ theory is. And in this imperfect world war may happen for the best.
Lastly, even though Rennie would never admit it out loud, but Major is a serious influence in Rennies life, both good and bad. Rennie has always dismissed the idea of ever learning anything from Major, but really Major has taught Rennie many things that his mother would never have been able to do. He has taught Rennie that there are two choices in life, no cheating, you can either get through it the hard and right way or you can stay down, there are no shortcuts. This is like “Do or don't do. Make your choice.
Following misunderstood traditions allows people to perform harmful actions because it is what they have been taught to do. In the short story, The Lottery, Shirley Jackson reveals the tragic consequences of not being willing to stand up against traditions that serve no useful purpose in society. Through the use of symbolism, characterization and setting shows the way that even ordinary people pursue traditions that create tension and harmful outcomes to anyone involved.

A box that has been used since the lottery started is now on its last leg but when "Mr. Summers spoke frequently to the villagers about making a new box, no one liked to even upset a tradition as was represented by the black
Macbeth let his ambition get to him, thinking about his pride and the role of the witches prophecies. His courage can never be controlled because he is not the type of person to never back out of a challenge even if it involves death. These virtues were the most important for him to have.

She explains to him that “As long as it is tightly fastened about him / There is no man on earth who can strike him down, / For he cannot be killed by any trick in the world” (Winny, 1852-1854). When she was only offering Gawain a material possession, he was able to easily push it away, but once it transformed into a chance at his life, he could not refuse it. By

I always got my quarry, Always. There is no greater bore than perfection.” Here he flat out says that no animal has the wit to challenge him anymore and he eventually says that. Since no animal could outsmart Zaroff, he decided to create a new one, but Zaroff needed an animal that “must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason.” Rainford realized that there is only one animal that can have reason, and that happens to be humans. Rainsford seems somewhat surprised by the arrogance of General Zaroff and by him saying that he actually hunts humans. Zaroff is completely blinded by his inhumane actions and he thinks that it is perfectly fine.
At this time, Antigone is a very independent character in that she wants to bury Polyneices on her own. She says, “I wouldn’t want the help you could give. It’s too late. You must be as you believe.

I will not let the pressure consumed by doubt suppress me from living my life.Doubt has already altered my life so much but I will not give in anymore.
