Huck, therefore, sees Jim as his friend and ignores society’s expectations to treat him less than human. After tearing up the letter he writes to Miss Watson, Huck “... studied a minute, sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: ‘All right, then, I’ll go to hell’” (214). Huck realizes that Jim is in need of assistance so he decides to do what is morally correct, which is to help Jim escape.
“Maybe it was better to break a man’s leg than to break his heart.” When you hurt a person their heart may never heal. Therefore, if you have no choice but hurt a character it’s better to “break their leg” than to hurt their heart. A leg can heal substantially quicker and easier than a heart. This is exactly what the story Seabiscuit is about, it’s about taking hits and still pushing forward to achieve exceptional accomplishments.
Arthur Dimmesdale from The Scarlet Letter however, set a more destructive path for himself. Although his pride did affect Hester Prynne and his daughter Pearl, It still was more about him torturing himself instead of admitting and confessing to what he did wrong and relieving himself of that guilt and pain. Instead he chose to live with the knowledge that he did all of this because he was so proud of his status in his community as the minister and didn't want to lose that respect everybody had him. The reason he didn’t tell the truth about the adultery was because of this very pride and he admits it.

Henry cherishes love and softness, but he thinks that he has to toughen up to seem strong for his friends. When he puts on this facade of strength, he has effectively given up his identity to those who attempt to control it, which infuriates Henry because he knows he has trapped himself but he sees no other way to freely live his

Don’t let it prevent you from pointing fingers at bullies. Calling bullies for what they are is a strong counter-measure against the perpetual abusive technique, and one you should practice often when you need to tackle bullying behavior. On the other hand, popular Hollywood footage can give us many ideas of why are we living in the world of bullying when we see its harmfuls ways and the wound it produces. Regardless of so much civilized progress, people are still ill-equipped for dealing with their wounds and often resort to devious use of power. There is always hope and I wouldn’t have been writing this book if I didn’t see a way through.

Machiavelli was not looking for princes to become cruel, militant tyrants, but rather wanted effectiveness to unite a kingdom and to unite the people.

Hence it is necessary that a prince who is interested in his survival learn to be other than good, making use of his capacity or refraining from it according to need" (Machiavelli
"Macbeth has an inner fight between good and evil, when he knows what he is doing is wrong and hesitates to kill Duncan but in that fight the ambition was stronger than defeating the conscious of good, making him act impulsively killing Duncan rather than waiting and seeing the prophesy through. “In his emotional peroration he appeared to be entirely intent upon moving his will, and if his eloquence does not make a simple sense it makes a complicated sense” (Stein 1951). However, others may argue if he were not evil why, would he do it in the first place? Well, the war among good and evil was clear to him, but in a moment of ambition and insanity, anyone can make a mistakes. “Macbeth’s tragic actions is not willed by destiny, but is the result

Last Section of Huck Finn (!) #1. How does Huck appear to be superior to Tom? Mark Twain portrays Huck as a character superior to Tom by making Huck as the complete opposite of Tom.
