"Character is doing the right thing when nobody 's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that 's right is to get by, and the only thing that 's wrong is to get caught", said JC Watts, an American politician. Yet many people seek opportunities to do what is right only when they think that someone else will view them favorably because of it; others conform to ideals they do not believe just so they can fit in with the group. A true hero is someone who always follows their morals, no matter what. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus is unusual in Maycomb because he works hard to act the same in private as he is when others are watching.
In order to then make it home, Odysseus relies on the loyalty of his crew to him, but it is deserved? Although some may say that Odysseus deserves the loyalty of his crew, he does not because he puts them in the way of danger, is very inconsiderate, and usually follows other plans that people have gave him. While on his journey home,
It’s a hard decision for Brutus, because Caesar is his best friend (he just doesn’t want Caesar to be leader because he’s not going to make Rome a better place for the people). So if he wants Rome to be safe, and have a good leader, Brutus has to kill him, he has to get things done soon and fast. So finally, I believe that Caesar is to dangerous to be the person in charge of everything here. , and he doesn’t care about anyone, but himself. Brutus has the respect and honor to become the leader of Rome.
Both of these highly influential authors had different opinions on ruling that would shape how people would rule during their time and for rulers to come. One of Machiavelli’s major points in The Prince was that it was better to be feared than to be loved. He said this was because while both ways can be useful tools to help one rule, men are less likely to turn a ruler if they were afraid of punishment. Machiavelli had little faith in the common man and had this to say about them, “They are ungrateful, fickle, deceptive and deceiving, avoiders of dangers, eager to gain”(pg.353). Machiavelli believed that men will follow a ruler as long as the ruler serves their interests, and a quick to turn against the ruler unless they fear great punishment.
The way I viewed his heart’s desire made me feel like he is less of a bad person than people might think. I thought his heart’s desire was to be the best king he could be. This is an important reason because all he wanted to do was be the best king he could be, while others thought otherwise. In this case, he thought it would be best to kill Antigone because she broke a law and he wanted to protect the people of Thebes from a felon, even if it was somebody else. In line 1228 he says to the leader: “Oh it’s hard giving up on the heart’s desire… but I will do it” after he is convinced to let Antigone free.
Evidently, that we can be independent of God. ’The religious sentiment will compensate us for all our losses.’ But there aren’t any losses for us to compensate. (17.206) In this quote, Mustapha Mond argues that there simply is no need for God in a society with no fear nor unhappiness. “You can only be independent of God while you’ve got youth and prosperity”, Mustapha’s choice of words, youth and prosperity, symbolizes happiness and success. He explains these features to be key to the independence of God since age, unhappiness and fear all draw man closer to what is Godly and divine.
Oedipus and Creon are both determined and loyal. Being determined does not help either of them, but being loyal does. A difference between them is that Oedipus serves the people, whereas Creon does everything by himself. Serving others helps Oedipus gain trust from his people. Creon’s trait that Oedipus does not have is self awareness.
He tried to do the best he could with what God gave him. He should get a nice raise for trying so hard.” This influences the story because it seems that because they are so equal, even if they just only try they still get credit for it. A main similarity is that people who are astute wear (0:0) handicaps and those who were idiotic didnt have to wear handicaps. This impacts the story because it shows you how different 2081 is compared to 2017 people are now expected to be equal and no one can be who they want to be, if they express themselves without following the rules they are required to have handicaps on or if they’re naturally smart, and pretty they threaten the rule of being “equal.” A other similarity is that he choose a ballerina to dance with him in the movie and the story ( 13:52) this is important to the story because they are trying to show everyone that a life without handicaps can express their true self and without performance with the ballerina they wouldnt be able to give that example to the
Also, it is important to say that reputation is the way how society views you. But, as we mentioned after analyzing the text, Cassio doesn’t care about society’s opinion, the only person, who is important for him is Othello. This means that he doesn’t really care about reputation related to his soul, he only cares about his material position in the society. He is afraid that he lost his reputation in Othello’s eyes and his social position is taken away from him. He is hoping to recover in his eyes in order to receive his material and social privileges
The people elect senators so the person, who receives the power, will work to better the city and its citizens. Brabantio puts down cruel and unjust rulings as he discriminates Rodrigo, “Thou art a villain”, and Iago asks him to reconsider since “[He is] a senator” (Shakespeare I.i.128-129). Desdemona’s father refuses to consider Roderigo and Iago as the senator is higher ranked. Brabantio only listens when their issue concerned about himself. The elites are centered solely on their own wellbeing and does not want to be bothered with affairs that does not affect them.
