Which means that we like telling the truth in a different way. Which I totally disagree on because there is no such thing in a different type of telling the truth.

Most of the Americans believe it is okay to lie sometimes and how sometimes it is not okay what so ever. In conclusion it’s your choice whether to lie or not, in the end make good decisions and try not to
Life is not always sunshine and rainbows.

Since honesty is one of the basic elements of morality in ancient greek culture, people would expect the praise toward this virtue in the Odyssey by Homer. However, it is palpable that deception could be a better policy in this book-- even the greatest person tells lies and conceals identity. Odysseus,the main character of the story who has been considered as a heroic figure is constantly staying in his disguise, even with numbers of positive connotations about deceit. Homer portrays Odysseus in this way in order to emphasize the wise and immortal aspects as one of the core characteristics of Odysseus, all through the revelation of deception. In the Odyssey, disguise is highly practical and successfully serves as a wise way to encounter strangers, test loyalty and search for help.

The ethical and right path is difficult and complex as J.K.Rowling has said, “Sometimes we must choose between what is right and what is easy.” Students do realize that cheating is wrong because they are very much concerned about getting caught but they still do it because they do not consider it unethical enough to avoid doing it because in
Iago tells people variations of the truth but has such conviction and belief in his words that it would be difficult not to believe him. For instance, Desdemona had only good traits that Iago managed to turn “into a positive insult”(181) against her, such as her being fruitful and free. Iago is able to trick everyone because he believes that his words have truth to them and “thinks [them] credible”(181).
