Doug lying next to his wife with children of his own sleeping in the other room woke up and decided that he “will arise and go now and kill Ralph Underhill” (Bradbury 1).

This is the first time Paul has killed with his own hands, and “every gasp [of the enemy] lays [Paul’s] heart bare” (Remarque 221).

Unlike Lady Macbeth, Macbeth felt guilty before he murdered King Duncan. Macbeth begins to have second thoughts about whether he wants to go on and murder King Duncan. On his way to murder King Duncan, Macbeth has the vision of the bloody dagger leading the way. While he realizes what he is about to do, he says “Is this a dagger which i see before me, the handle toward my hand”(II, I, 40-41).

During a conversation with Nick, Tom says, “[Wilson] was crazy enough to kill me if I hadn’t told him who owned the car” (178). The fact that Tom sends Wilson to Gatsby despite knowledge of Wilson’s mental instability proven by “his hand on a revolver in his pocket,” demonstrates Tom’s selfishness and his disregard for others (178). Ultimately, Tom eliminates his competition—Gatsby—by exploiting Wilson’s grief and anger over Myrtle’s death. Subsequently, he says, “What if I did tell [Wilson]? [Gatsby] had it coming to him … if you think I didn’t have my share of suffering … I sat down and cried like a baby” (178-179).
