Denial through himself is the hardest fight to win, and Brick is losing. He denies himself for the sake of others trying to please everyone around him instead of taking it and making himself happy.

When Captain Torres walked into the revolutionary’s barbershop, the barber had to make a life changing decision about whether or not he should or should not kill Captain Torres, who is his enemy. In the story “ Just Lather, that’s all” one of the main ideas is that moral decisions help define one 's character. This shows that moral decision making reflects one 's destiny, as the barber considers both outcomes; either to kill or not to kill. Firstly, the barber contemplates on killing Captain Torres, the executioner, so he would stop killing the rebels, but does not want to be a murderer.

Throughout the play The Crucible, John Proctor shows that he is a tragic hero. Although he is a hero, we see this in both good and bad ways. John is seen as a devil worshipper when he says, “I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face!”(119-120) He says this because he is now being the one accused of having seen the devil and this was his way of responding. It seems to make everyone think that he is evil because he is saying how he has seen that devil and that it was Danforth that he saw.
